CD1a is a membrane surface glycoprotein that has good specificity for Langerhans cells and immature T cells. In normal skin, CD1a stains scattered Langerhans cells in the upper dermis and epidermis; reactivity in normal thymus gland is in the cortical thymocytes (immature T cells). This immunostain is useful in phenotyping acute lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma of T-cell lineage and in diagnosis of Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
