Acetylcholinesterase histochemistry (AChE)--A helpful technique in the diagnosis and in aiding the operative procedures of Hirschsprung disease.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Hirschsprung's disease (HD) is an anomaly characterized by the absence of myenteric and submucosal ganglion cells (GC) in the distal alimentary tract. Diagnosis of HD is made by the absence of GC and missing out on even a single ganglion cell can be very devastating. Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) histochemistry, done on frozen sections is said to… (More)
