Neimann Pick disease Type C Lysosomal storage disorder characterized by cholesterol accumulation in multiple organs Niemann Pick Disease type C (NPC) is an autosomal recessive lipidosis that is characterized by lysosomal storage of cholesterol and glycosphingolipids. In normal mammalian cells, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is bound and internalized by cell surface receptors and is hydrolyzed in the endocytic compartment. The cholesterol that is released is transported to the cell surface and endoplasmic reticulum. Notes on intracellular accumulations… By Dr. Ashish V.

Resorption droplets in proximal renal tubules Proteins filtered through glomerulus are reabsorbed by pinocytosis through proximal tubules Seen as pink hyaline droplets within cytoplasm of tubular cells in proteinuric states In proteinuric states, the proximal tubular epithelial cells reabsorbs proteins that has leaked through the glomerular filter Notes on intracellular accumulations… By Dr. Ashish V.

  18. 18. - 18 - 4. Accumulation of cytoskeletal proteins ALCOHOLIC HYALINE (MALLORY HYALINE) Eosinophilic globules seen in liver cells, consists predominantly of keratin intermediate filaments Seen to be accumulated in alcoholic liver disease At high magnification can be seen globular red hyaline material within hepatocytes. NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLE Seen in Alzheimers disease Neurofibrillary Tangles (NFTs) are aggregates of hyperphosphorylated tau protein that are most commonly known as a primary marker of Alzheimer's Disease.

  20. 20. - 20 - * Carbohydrate metabolism disorder products Glycogen Glycgoen accumulates in renal tubular epithelial cells, liver cells and islets of langerhans, heart cells in diabetes mellitus and glycogen storage disorders. It is cleared by diastase unlike fat. PAS gives it a rose violet color. Glycogen storage disease (GSD, also glycogenosis and dextrinosis) is the result of defects in the processing of glycogen synthesis or breakdown within muscles, liver, and other cell types Notes on intracellular accumulations… By Dr. Ashish V. Jawarkar Contact: pathologybasics@gmail.com Facebook: facebook.com/pathologybasics
  21. 21. - 21 - * PIGMENTS EXOGENOUS PIGMENTS 1. Carbon Gets deposited in Coal worker’s pneumoconiosis and anthracosis. Coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP), colloquially referred to as black lung disease, is caused by long exposure to coal dust. It is a common affliction of coal miners and others who work with coal, similar to both silicosis from inhaling silica dust, and to the longterm effects of tobacco smoking[citation needed]. Inhaled coal dust progressively builds up in the lungs and is unable to be removed by the body; that leads to inflammation, fibrosis, and in worse cases, necrosis. Coal workers' pneumoconiosis, severe state, develops after the initial, milder form of the disease known as anthracosis (anthrac — coal, carbon). This is often asymptomatic and is found to at least some extent in all urban dwellers[1] due to air pollution. Coal workers pneumoconiosis Notes on intracellular accumulations… By Dr. Ashish V.

  23. 23. - 23 - ENDOGENOUS PIGMENTS 1. Lipofuscin Lipofuscin is the name given to finely granular yellow-brown pigment granules composed of lipid-containing residues of lysosomal digestion. It is considered to be one of the aging or "wear-and-tear" pigments, found in the liver, kidney, heart muscle, retina, adrenals, nerve cells, and ganglion cells. It is specifically arranged around the nucleus, and is a type of lipochrome. Neuronal lipofuscin Notes on intracellular accumulations… By Dr. Ashish V.

  24. 24. - 24 - 2. Hemosiderin Normally hemosiderin is seen in mononuclear phagocytes of bone marrow, spleen and liver engaged in red cell break down. Local deposition of hemosiderin can be seen in bruises Systemic excess of iron as in increased dietry iron, hemolytic anemias and blood transfusion leads to deposition in 1. Initially in phagocytes of spleen, liver, bone marrow and lymphnodes (hemosiderosis) 2. Then in parenchymal cells of liver, pancreas (bronze diabetes), heart and endocrine organs It is a golden brown pigment on HE Prussian blue stain is used to stain hemosiderin Hemosiderosis Due to iron excess due to various reasons Deposition in phagocytes Hemochromatosis Due to inherited defect in iron transporter Deposition in parenchymal cells The hepatocytes and Kupffer cells here are full of granular brown deposits of hemosiderin from accumulation of excess iron in the liver.

  26. 26. - 26 - 3. Melanin Melanin is a derivative of the amino acid tyrosine, however it is not itself made of amino acids and is not a protein. The pigment is produced in a specialized group of cells known as melanocytes. In humans, melanin is the primary determinant of skin color. It is also found in hair, the pigmented tissue underlying the iris of the eye, and the stria vascularis of the inner ear. In the brain, tissues with melanin include the medulla and pigment-bearing neurons within areas of the brainstem, such as the locus coeruleus and the substantia nigra. It also occurs in the zona reticularis of the adrenal gland. Melanin is brown, non-refractile, and finely granular with individual granules having a diameter of less than 800 nanometers. This differentiates melanin from common blood breakdown pigments, which are larger, chunky, and refractile, and range in color from green to yellow or red-brown. In heavily pigmented lesions, dense aggregates of melanin can obscure histologic detail. A dilute solution of potassium permanganate is an effective melanin bleach.

  27. 27. - 27 - 4. Homogentisic acid Alkaptonuria (black urine disease or alcaptonuria) is a rare inherited genetic disorder of phenylalanine and tyrosine metabolism. This is an autosomal recessive condition that is due to a defect in the enzyme homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase which participates in the degradation of tyrosine. As a result, homogentisic acid and its oxide, called alkapton, accumulate in the blood and are excreted in urine in large amounts (hence -uria). Excessive homogentisic acid causes damage to cartilage (ochronosis, leading to osteoarthritis) and heart valves as well as precipitating as kidney stones Notes on intracellular accumulations… By Dr. Ashish V.
