In summary, there is a wide range of pathologic alterations in pemphigoid lesions. Frequently, the pathologist is confident of the diagnosis on light microscopy alone. There are sufficiently similar findings in other conditions, however, to justify direct or indirect immunofluorescence or both in every case. This is particularly true as ...

Rhinosporidiosis is reviewed, and the first autochthonous case in Spain is presented (site: in the nasal cavity of a 19-year-old male from a rural background). Diagnosis was established morphologically after eliminating the possibilities of Cryptococcus neoformans, Coccidioides immitis, and Chrysosporium crescens. Clinico-pathological features are described. Preparations were stained with hematoxylin-eosin, ...

In studying macroglossia, no one has described normal tongue size or applied direct measurement to the pathologically enlarged tongue. Since macroglossia is primarily a condition that requires treatment on a symptomatic basis, definition of the problem in clinical terms is the most useful form for the practitioner. Based on published ...

The ocular pathologic findings were determined in a case of fatal infantile periarteritis nodosa (IPN). To our knowledge, this case is the first histologically documented report of choroidal inflammation associated with this disease. Since the clinical and pathologic findings of IPN and Kawasaki's disease (KD) are identical, these findings should ...
