Koilocytes, the hallmark of HPV infection, with raisin-like nuclear membranes and a perinuclear halo (40x magnification).
Perinuclear dot-like CK20 positivity would be diagnostic for MCC, but a close look on CK20 staining revealed neoplastic cells that had diffuse cytoplasmic staining as well as neoplastic cells with perinuclear dot-like staining [Figure 4].
The researchers found that HCV caused an accumulation of membrane phosopholipids but not neutral lipids and that cholesterol accumulated in the perinuclear region of HCV-infected cells.
Additionally, phagocytic vacuoles with membranous residues and widened perinuclear cisterna were observed in a few apoptotic cells (Figure 8h-inset).
Serological viral markers and antinuclear antibodies, anti-double stranded DNA, glomerular basement membrane antibody, cytoplasmic antineutrophil cytoplasm antibodies, and perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasm antibodies were negative while complements were within normal limits.

Laboratory testing was significant only for a mildly elevated anti-proteinase-3 antibody (6.2; laboratory normal range < 3.5); anti-myeloperoxidase antibody test, cytoplasmic and perinuclear anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody staining on immunofluorescence, and a nasal mucosa biopsy were all negative, and anti-nuclear antibody titers were within normal limits; hsCRP was mildly elevated (Fig.
