Six morphologic cell types comprise the human bronchial epithelium: basal cells that do not reach the bronchial lumen, neurosecretory cells (Kulchitsky's cells, K-cells, or small granule cells) that rarely reach the lumen, and indifferent cells, mucous cells [small mucous granule cells (SMGC) and mucous goblet cells], ciliated cells, and ciliated-mucous(More)
Majocchi's granuloma (MG) is an atypical and uncommon presentation of dermatophytic infection involving the invasion of dermal and subcutaneous tissue by fungal organisms. It usually begins as a suppurative folliculitis and may culminate in the development of widespread granulomas. Immunosuppressed patients are at increased risk, especially those with(More)
The histogenesis of epidermoid metaplasia and carcinoma in situ was analyzed in human bronchial epithelium. The conclusion is that epidermoid metaplasia and carcinoma in situ can result from conversion of mucous cells. This implies the direct transformation of one type of fully differentiated cell to another. The study therefore emphasizes the(More)
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a rare disease in the pediatric population that usually presents in children with predisposing genetic conditions. It is often diagnosed on final pathology of an excisional biopsy, and the treatment may be delayed in younger populations because of a physician's low index of suspicion. Increased knowledge of BCC by pediatric(More)
Open lung biopsies from three patients with Legionnaires' disease were examined by light and transmission electron microscopy. The patients had serious underlying disease. All developed a rapidly progressive pneumonia unresponsive to penicillin, oxacillin, and gentamicin. One patient, who received erythromycin, survived. Light microscopy in all three showed(More)
An unusual case of malignant cylindroma of the scalp arising in a 79-year-old white female with multiple cylindromatosis is presented. The tumor apparently arose from a cylindroma and had features of spiradenoma. Multiple cylindromatosis is an uncommon hereditary autosomal dominant disease, which is characterized by multiple skin adnexal tumors like(More)
