Unusual ultrastructural features of leiomyosarcoma of the lung.

Abstract

The electron microscopic features of a leiomyosarcoma occurring in the lung, a rare site, were studied. Unusual was the finding of extremely electron-dense bands that interrupted the longitudinally-arranged microfilaments and dense bodies of many of the tumor cells. The bands superficially resembled anomalous Z-bands seen in nemalin myopathy and aging rat… (More)
