Common and different traits of cellular morphology related to viral involvement were found. In one line, morphologic aspects and preliminary immunologic characterization suggested a virus resembling cytomegalovirus. The other 4 cases presented one important trait in common: The appearance of viruses (at an… CONTINUE READING
