Utilizing a unique ability of homocysteine to form a yellow-brown precipitate with nickel chloride, a cytochemical test was developed in an effort to identify this amino acid. Among a variety of types of anemias studied, bright yellow-colored erythrocytes and erythroid precursors were found only in marrows from patients who had untreated pernicious anemia(More)
The Sysmex R-3000 (TOA Medical Electronics, Kobe, Japan) evaluates maturation of reticulocytes by quantitating the fraction of reticulocytes within low-, middle-, and high-fluorescence intensity regions. We defined the immature reticulocyte fraction (IRF) as the sum of the fraction of high-fluorescence intensity regions plus the fraction of(More)
Eosinophilia and plasmacytosis of the bone marrow were found in a group of patients with newly diagnosed Hodgkin's disease. An attempt was made to correlate these cytologic findings with other modalities used in the staging of patients with Hodgkin's disease and believed to have prognostic importance, such as age, sex, histologic type of Hodgkin's disease,(More)
BACKGROUND Needle localization breast biopsy (NLBB) is the standard for removal of breast lesions after vacuum assisted core biopsy (VACB). Disadvantages include a miss rate of 0% to 22%, a positive margin rate of approximately 50%, and vasovagal reactions (approximately 20%). We hypothesized that clip migration after VACB is clinically significant and may(More)
Using the high resolution technique of isoelectric focusing in polyacrylamide gel, isoenzymatic components of acid phosphatase were detected in cell-free extracts prepared from different cytologic types of leukemic blasts in adults. Results indicate that for different cytologic types, different characteristic patterns of acid phosphatase isoenzyme could be(More)
Using the high resolution technique of isoelectric focusing in polyacrylamide gel, isoenzymatic components could be discerned in acid phosphatase extracted from normal human lymphocytes, granulocytes, monocytes, and platelets. For each cell type, distinctive isoenzymatic patterns of acid phosphatase activity could be observed. These studies provide further(More)
Isolated fallopian tube torsion is a rare entity that most frequently occurs during the menstruating years, but has also been reported in premenopausal and postmenopausal women. Diagnosis of this condition is often delayed because of the rarity of its occurrence and prolonged investigations to rule out more common causes of acute abdominal pain. A case of a(More)
