Answer

A nongranulomatous inflammatory reaction occurs that is characterized by infiltration of mononuclear cells, such as macrophages, lymphocytes, and plasma cells. In the most severe cases, mononuclear cells may organize into granulomatous lesions. Mast cells, neutrophils, and eosinophils may also be present.
