Nucleolar organiser regions (NORs) demonstrated by argyrophilia of NOR-proteins are indicator of cellular proliferative activity. The NORs can be identified in the nuclei as brown or black dots with silver colloidal staining technique in formalin fixed paraffin sections and in cytology smears. Seventy-five cases including 45 tissue sections and 30 fine(More)
Histopathological study of 10 cases sclerema neonatorum showed subcutaneous fibrosis with lobulation in all the cases. 8 (80 percent) cases showed non-specific chronic inflammation of dermis and thinning of epidermis with atrophy of rete pegs and hypercollgenisation of dermis was evident in 70 percent cases. Fat necrosis with crystallisation of fat content(More)
