Immunostaining for hemoglobin in two cases of myospherulosis

Arch Pathol Lab Med. 1986 Aug;110(8):763-5.


To investigate the previously reported origin of myospherulosis from altered erythrocytes, we used an antibody to hemoglobin. Positive staining further supports the origin of myospherulosis from red blood cells. Immunostaining for hemoglobin provides a practical method for distinguishing myospherulosis from other spherulelike structures.
