Charcot-Leyden crystals develop spontaneously in certain diseases of man and can be formed within minutes from eosinophils lysed with a surface-active agent (Aerosol-OT). Treated human eosinophils examined by electron microscopy showed the general features of cell lysis. After disruption of the eosinophilic granule of man, there remained an insoluble crystalline core, which was now more dispersed, a few tubular structures resembling microtubules and a fine granular accumulation around the… CONTINUE READING
