The use of anti-human renin antibodies made possible the intrarenal localization of renin in human kidney by immunofluorescence. In normal kidney, only some juxtaglomerular apparatus (JGA) were fluorescent. In these JGA, granular or diffuse fluorescence was only seen in afferent arterioles and was not present in all cells. In the ischemic areas of partially(More)
Thirty kidneys from nine embryos, 20 fetuses, and one full-term baby were examined for their renin content by immunofluorescence and the peroxidase antiperoxidase method, using an antihuman renin antiserum. Renin-containing cells were found in the early metanephros (5-week-old fetuses). Most of them were located in the wall of well-developed renal arteries(More)
Histologic, transmission, and scanning electron microscopic observations were made of 26 biopsy specimens from patent polytetrafluoroethylene grafts that had been implanted as arterial bypasses for up to 60 months. The results showed the rarity of host connective tissue ingrowth, the absence of neovascularization, and the limited neointimal proliferation.(More)
This is a case report of a megacolon in a 26 years old male patient having typical von Recklinghausen's disease. Exploratory laparotomy shows no neurofibroma on digestive tract. Myenteric plexus study of colic resection specimen following B. Smith technique reveals marked alterations. These alterations are both quantitative (hyperhypoganglionosis) and(More)
The distribution of renin in two cases of segmental renal hypoplasia was investigated by immunofluorescence and the peroxidase anti-peroxidase (PAP) method using an anti-human renin antiserum. Renin-containing cells were found only in hypoplasic segments in the vicinity of altered glomeruli and small arteries. Well-preserved renal cortex and areas of(More)
The distribution of renin in human kidney was investigated by immunofluorescence and the peroxidase-antiperoxidase (PAP) procedure at the light and ultrastructural level. In three cases of juxtaglomerular renin-secreting tumors, renin was localized within the cytoplasm of tumor cells. In kidney biopsies, a semi-quantitative assessment was carried out,(More)
The authors reported two cases of epithelial myoepithelial carcinoma or clear cell adenocarcinoma of salivary intercalated duct with medical literature review. This rare tumor discovered in adults and old patients is frequently localized in parotid gland. Histologically it is composed of two types of cells: epithelial cylindrical cells bordering ductal(More)
