Phagocytic Tumour Cells

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In two patients, one with carcinoma of the lung and the other with carcinoma of the breast, bone marrow aspirates contained tumour cells in the cytoplasm of which were red cells. Special stains were used to confirm this observation. A review of 99 other bone marrow aspiates containing metastatic tumour cells failed to reveal other examples of this phenomenon.
