Multinucleated giant cells were demonstrated within the lumen of the seminiferous tubule.
As may occur in untreated rheumatoid arthritis patients, MTX treatment itself can induce the formation of nodules, an accumulation of multinucleated giant cells derived from differentiated mononuclear cells.
a patient can be classified as having temporal arteritis if three of the following five criteria are met: (1) age of onset [greater than or equal to] 50 years: (2) localized headache of new onset or quality; (3) temporal artery abnormality such as tenderness or decreased pulsations unrelated to arteriosclerosis of cervical arteries: (4) ESR [greater than or equal to] 50 mm/h by the Westergren method; and (5) abnormal artery biopsy with predominance of mononuclear cells or granulomatous inflammation, usually with multinucleated giant cells.
Giant cell myocarditis (GCM) was first described in 1905 and is characterized by a mixed myocardial infiltrate with multinucleated giant cells and cardiomyocyte necrosis.
Review of the 40 Leishmania-positive cytologic smears and histologic sections of 100 patients was conducted in details blindly by 3 pathologists and was scored according to Table 1 by differentiation of the various types of inflammatory cells (plasma cells, eosinophils, lymphocytes, segmented neutrophils, monocytes, mast cells, multinucleated giant cells, and binucleated histiocytes), free Leishman-Donovan bodies (L-Ds), and granulomatous reaction.
It is characterized by blood-filled spaces lined by fibrous septa containing osteoclast-like multinucleated giant cells and delicate spicules of osteoid.
Cytologic findings consisted of granuloma, macrophages loaded with Leishman-Donovan bodies (Figure 2, A), multinucleated giant cells (Figure 2, B), binucleated-histiocyte (Reed-Sternberg-like) cells loaded with Leishman-Donovan bodies, free Leishman-Donovan bodies, acute and chronic inflammatory cells, atypical organisms, histiocytes, plasma cells and mast cells (Figure 2, C), Leishman-Donovan bodies in the vicinity of respiratory epithelium in nasal smears, and atypical intracytoplasmic Leishman-Donovan bodies with ballooning changes.
4) Aneurysmal bone cyst is an expansile, multilocular, osteolytic lesion with blood-filled spaces separated by fibrous septa containing multinucleated giant cells and peripheral reactive bone.
Pathological examination of the left helix showed that the epidermis was thin, with flattening of the rete ridges and many epithelioid granulomas with local caseous necrosis, accompanied by infiltration of lymphocytes into the dermis, multinucleated giant cells were not remarkable [Figure 1]b.
Microscopy revealed many cyst spaces lined by macrophages and occasional multinucleated giant cells, predominantly in the subserosal layers.
In addition to the above, variable numbers of multinucleated giant cells are often present (Figure 2, A), as are foci of hemosiderin deposition (Figure 2, B).
Histologically, the skin, oral mucosa, duodenum, pancreas, and mesenteric lymph nodes contained multifocal eosinophilic granulomas that were characterized by a central core of eosinophilic material surrounded by eosinophils, macrophages, multinucleated giant cells, occasional plasma cells, and fibrovascular connective tissue proliferation (Figure 1C).
