Example text

Careful examination will show that it is not related to cells and is often in another plane of focus. Other cytochemical stains Cytochemical stains are employed mainly in the investigation of acute leukaemia and the myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). In acute leukaemia there may be numerous blast cells in the peripheral blood and it is then useful to perform cytochemical stains on blood and bone marrow in parallel. Cytochemical investigation of suspected MDS should be performed on bone marrow films since there are usually only small numbers of immature cells in the peripheral blood.

Lymphoid follicles are discussed further on page 114. Plasma cells Cytology Plasma cells (Fig. 48) are infrequent in normal bone marrow in which they rarely constitute more than 1% of nucleated cells. In healthy children they are even less frequent [23]. They are distinctive cells with a diameter of 15–20 µm and an eccentric nucleus, moderately basophilic cytoplasm and a prominent paranuclear Golgi zone. The cytoplasm may contain occasional vacuoles and sometimes stains pink with a May–Grünwald–Giemsa (MGG) stain, consequent on the presence of carbohydrate.

Cytochemical investigation of suspected MDS should be performed on bone marrow films since there are usually only small numbers of immature cells in the peripheral blood. The techniques recommended for diagnosis and classification of acute leukaemia are either myeloperoxidase or Sudan black B staining, to identify cells showing granulocytic differentiation, plus a non-specific esterase or combined esterase stain, to identify cells showing monocytic differentiation. Enzyme cytochemistry for either α-naphthyl butyrate esterase or α-naphthyl acetate esterase is suitable as a ‘non-specific’ esterase staining method for the identification of monocytic differentiation.
