Subsequently, abnormal histiocytes were found in the bone marrow and blood, and 8 months after the onset of his illness lymph node biopsy led to the diagnosis of histiocytic medullary reticulosis. At that time the level of serum acid phosphatase activity was more than 60 times the upper limit of normal and then paralleled the activity of his disease during… CONTINUE READING
