Abstract

Hematoxylin-stained bodies and tissue "LE cells" have been identified for the first time in a skeletal muscle biopsy from a 46-year-old white female with clinical and laboratory evidence of systemic lupus erythematosus. The specificity and limited usefulness of hematoxylin bodies are discussed.
