Description
DISCUSSION Myospherulosis, currently named spherulocytosis or spherulocystic disease, 1-
2 is a chronic granulomatous inflammation characterized by cystic structures. 3 The
diagnosis depends on the histologic identification of the characteristic cystic spaces filled by
erythrocyte aggregates and described as" partly filled bags of marbles." 1 There is a
surrounding foreign body or foamy granulomatous reaction and variable number of
lymphocytes, plasma cells, and eosinophils.
