The authors investigated ultrastructural cytochemical features of multinucleated and mononuclear stromal cells in giant cell tumor of bone (GCTB), giant cell tumor of tendon sheath (GCTTS), and pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS). Specimens of each tumor, respectively numbering 4, 4, and 3, were stained for tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) reactions and examined with an electron microscope. In GCTB and GCTTS, multinucleated cells, including some relatively small giant cells… CONTINUE READING
