[Histonet] Argyrophil stains.
Ole, somewhere overseas I suspect, asks about the Sevier Munger stain.
The reference is: Sevier, A.C., Munger, B.L., A silver method for paraffin sections of neural tissue. J. Neuropath Exp Neurol. 24: 130 - 135 1965
However, in the USA (and is it not interesting how labs use procedures written by their own countrymen?)many labs use the Churukian method which demonstrates a wider variety of argyrophil tumors. Churukian, J.,Schenk, E.A. A modification of Pascual's argyrophil method. J. Histotechnol 3: 102 - 102 1979.
I read somewhere, long ago, that there is no one method which will demonstrate ALL argyophil tumors, but the Chrukian method demonstrates the widest variety.
