(9) Extensive data support the use of nail clippings for pathology processing and periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) or Grocott-Gomori methenamine silver (GMS) staining that offers improved diagnostic accuracy.
Results of staining with periodic acid-Schiff and Gomori methenamine silver were positive for fungi (Figure 1, panel B).
Special stains for fungal organisms, including Gomori methenamine silver (GMS) and periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) were strongly positive (figure 3).
Periodic acid-Schiff and Grocott's methenamine silver staining were negative for fungus.
Cytoplasmic vacuoles in SRSCT are negative for periodic acid-Schiff (PAS), Alcian blue, mucicarmine, Hale colloidal iron, Sudan III, oil red O, and Nile blue.
(b) Periodic acid-Schiff staining demonstrating cellular crescents in two glomeruli and inflammatory infiltrate in surrounding interstitium.
Also, the following methods were performed on the tissue samples obtained from the patient; alkaline-acid resistance factors for tuberculosis bacteria (AARB) and Lowenstein-Jensen culture, Ehrlich Ziehl-Neelsen (EZN) staining and Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) staining for the investigation of fungal infections.
The most commonly utilized confirmatory tests include periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) staining, nail culture, in-office potassium hydroxide (KOH) preparation of nail clippings, or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) [5, 6], each conferring unique strengths and limitations.
Periodic acid-Schiff and Periodic acid-Schiff-diastase stains were negative for alpha 1 anti-trypsin granules.
Further findings included conspicuous stromal hemorrhage, abundant cytoplasmic glycogen (according to Alcian blue and periodic acid-Schiff staining (Figure 4(d))), absence of mucin, and lymphovascular invasion.
Data noted age at presentation, gender, medical history, physical examination, blood and bone marrow investigations such as, haemoglobin levels, blood cell count myeloperoxidase activity, periodic acid-Schiff and reticulin staining as well as final diagnosis.
Necropsy of two affected siblings revealed multiple sites of hemorrhage, cytoplasmic periodic acid-Schiff and Luxol fast blue positive inclusions in neurons, and aggregates of foamy macrophages in visceral organs.
