Identification of RS-like B-cells in subtypes of PTCL has led to a diagnostic dilemma as classical Hodgkin lymphomas are also characterized by a polymorphous background infiltrate.
The diagnostic criteria can be divided into major and minor ones.[sup][4] The major criteria include polymorphous skin eruption, concurrent internal neoplasia, antibodies with an immunoprecipitation specific standard, and the minor criteria include histological evidence of intraepithelial acantholysis, direct immunofluorescence (DIF) showing a linear pattern in an area of the basement membrane with immunoglobulin G (IgG) and complement 3 (C3) deposition, and in DIF using rat bladder epithelium as a substrate.
FNAC from the cervical node appeared moderately cellular showing polymorphous infiltration of mature lymphocytes, eosinophils, mononuclear giant cells with prominent nucleoli, occasional bi-nucleate Reed Sternberg cells, epithelioid granuloma in a fibrinous background.
(As a child, Faux was often ill: "I was very conscious of my body and that [it] was not always in synch with how I felt.") But that fragmentation doubles for the multiplicity of desire: Faux's most recent work depicts couples engaged in acts both violent and tender, their bodies splintering with polymorphous emotion.

Almereyda conceives of Milgram's life and work as a kind of constantly evolving Experimenter theater piece and runs with Director: the idea, resulting in a decidedly Brechtian bit of filmmaking that routinely breaks the fourth wall and employs other bits of theatrical artifice to tell its tale.

In the untreated diabetic rats, hyperglycemia severely damaged the testes morphology as well as the spermatogenic process as evidenced by the: thickness of basement membrane of the seminiferous tubule; mitochondria alteration; abnormal spermatocyte cells displaying polymorphous nuclei, cytoplasmic vacuolization and necrosis; and disorganization and degeneration of sperm germ cells.
