Abstract : The authors suggest that in the course of reticuloplasmocytoma there need not always appear absolute dysproteinemia. The lack of albumin disturbances in blood serum may be explained by two mechanisms: (1) 'storage' of pathological albumin in the cytoplasm of a cell rich in ergastoplasm may be dependent upon its enzymatic inability to evacuate albumin from the cell. Then, in the bone marrow thesaurocytes would be observed; (2) injury to the cell by an unknown pathological factor leading to total incapacity of the cell in the protein-synthesizing section. As is evident from the above, the absence of albumin disturbances in the blood serum in the course of plasmocytoma need not be of absolute diagnostic significance. (Author)
