Decreased nuclear segmentation and coarse chromatin only in mature eosinophils was seen in a patient with acute myeloblastic leukemia. These eosinophils were considered to have acquired Pelger-Huët anomaly. On cytochemical study they displayed a strong PAS-positive reaction.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disease with approximately 20,000 cases per year in the United States. AML also accounts for 15-20% of all childhood acute leukemias, while it is responsible for more than half of the leukemic deaths in these patients. Here is the latest research on this disease.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
