Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Six children with clinical and pathological features of Batten-Vogt syndrome showed autofluorescent material in bone marrow cells and in 5 of them sea-blue histiocytes were seen. It is suggested that bone marrow examination for sea-blue histiocytes and autofluorescence is a useful screening test for ceroid-lipofuscinosis.
