I quite often see faint cytoplasmic staining in immunostains for
Helicobacter. You're supposed to ignore it. It's often present in the
negative control slide - one of the few reasons I ever look at a
negative control slide.

These days I get my IHC for Helicobacter from whatever Genzyme is
called this week. I'm noticing considerably less cytoplasmic staining
than I've usually seen before. (I have no commercial interest here.)
