reticulin

 [rĕ-tik´u-lin]
a scleroprotein present in the connective fibers of reticular tissue, closely related to collagen in composition.

re·tic·u·lin

(re-tik'yū-lin),
Name given to the chemical substance of reticular fibers, which were formerly thought to be distinct from collagen by reason of their distinctive structure and staining properties but are now regarded as type III collagen (with its associated proteoglygans and structural glycoproteins).

re·tic·u·lin

(rĕ-tik'yū-lin)
The chemical substance of reticular fibers, regarded as type III collagen (with its associated proteoglygans and structural glycoproteins).

Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded bone marrow sections of PMF, AML with reticulin myelofibrosis, multiple myeloma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura with DAPI staining were exposed to 405-, 488-, 561-, and 633-nm channels in CLSM.

in 2010.[2] In the beginning, TAFRO stood for Thrombocytopenia (T), Anasarca (A), Fever (F), Reticulin fibrosis (R), and Organomegaly (O) which was consistent with the clinical presentation of our patient.[4] In 2012, a diagnostic criterion was proposed for TAFRO syndrome at the Fukushima and Nagoya meeting, and some slight changes were made for the acronyms: F presented myelofibrosis and R for renal dysfunction.[4] This criterion was composed of 11 items [Table 1] which included both clinical and laboratory parameters.

The bone marrow biopsy showed hypercellular marrow with striking granulocytic and megakaryocytic hyperplasia with atypical megakaryocytes and moderate reticulin fibrosis (Figure 1(a)-1(c)).
The Masson trichrome stain confirmed dense well-established fibrosis in the bridging septa, and the reticulin stain confirmed twinning of the cell plates.
There is no nuclear reactivity for p53 protein by immunohistochemistry, and no increase in reticulin deposition is noted with the reticulin stain.
Focal and Diffuse fibrosis was seen in 20 (87%) cases, ranging from grade I to III by reticulin staining and unremarkable in 3 (13%) cases.
September 2016: Bone marrow biopsy comments: Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (10% involvement); JAK2 mutation positive, marked reticulin fibrosis, consistent with myeloproliferative neoplasm, such as primary myelofibrosis.
On the same occasion, liver tissue samples were also taken, fixed with 10% formaldehyde, stained using hematoxylin and eosin (HE), periodic acid-Schiff and reticulin stain protocols and analyzed with light microscopy.
