Answer

Huang et al reported that with Warthin-Starry stain, the organisms were located outside the cells and were mainly in the necrotic debris, especially near the nodal capsule, while BhmAB immunostain showed the same localization but organisms were seen as dotlike granular, as well as a few linear, positive signals.
