CD57 is a marker expressed in the membrane of NK cells and other T cells such as CD8+ lymphocytes, and by a small percentage of CD4+/CD45R0+ T lymphocytes in lymph node germinal centers. CD57 is also expressed in Normal neuroectodermal cells and striated muscle. It reacts with tumors derived from neuroendocrine cells including neuroendocrine tumors of diverse origins, pheochromocytomas, paragangliomas, medulloblastoma, and varying proportions of neural tumors such as schwannomas, neurofibromas, neuromas, and granular cell tumors. CD57 antibody is a useful marker in distinguishing nodular lymphocyte predominance Hodgkin’s disease from nodular sclerosing Hodgkin’s disease, T-cell-rich B-cell lymphoma, and follicular lymphoma, and also aids in the classification of oligodendrogliomas and neuroendocrine tumors.
