The typical inflammatory granulomatous response is a tissue chronic reaction that causes targeted lesions as a result of in situ persistence of injury by the pathogen agent, where predominantly the mononuclear phagocytic cells form aggregates of macrophages and multinucleated giant cells, which in most cases are surrounded by lymphocytes, and depending on the time of development, they could display fibrosis (Williams and Williams, 1983; Perez-Torres et al.
