10 in 10 Histology 3

10 in 10 slides for 3rd Histology Exam OSUCOM

Aquired Immunodeficiency Disease Mediated by RNA retrovirus. Utilizes a glycoprotein (gp120) on its surface to bind to CD4 protein on the surface of T helper cells allowing virus to fuse with CD4+ T cells.
What is the process that HIV undergoes for its replication up to the point of transcription? GP120 glycoprotein binds to CD4 on T cell allowing fusion of the virus. Release of HIV contents including reverse transcriptase and its RNA-encoded genome. Reverse transcriptase converts the RNA->DNA->incorporated into genome of T cell. (1)
After HIV is incorporated into the T-Cell what then happens? Transcription and translation machinery of T cell now generates more copies of HIV. Replication occurs in T cell-> lyzes T cell-> release of thousands of new copies of HIV->infect more T cells.
What is the result of HIV infection? Decreased CD4->persistent re-occuring infections by opportunistic pathogens (pneumonia, toxoplasmosis) and development of malignancies (Kaposi sarcoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma).
How does the immune system respond to HIV infection? Generation of CD8, CTL, and Ab.
How is HIV diagnosed? The diagnosis is via PCR to detect virus RNA sequence and/or counts of CD4 T cells.
How is HIV treated? Cocktail of chemotherapeutic agents including AZT-an inhibitor of reverse transcriptase.

What is monocytosis? A condition in which the total wbc count is greater than 10% or greater than 800/uL.
What causes monocytosis? Anything causes it--bacterial, viral, and protozoan infections.
T/F Hodgkin lymphoma and chronic myelogenous leukemia are two malignancies with extremely high monocyte counts. T
What are the conditions that cause Eosinophilia? 1. Substantial Dosage with glucocorticoids. 2. Substantial dosage with ACTH. 3. Stressors that cause high release of adrenal cortisol such as infection, burns, and trauma. 4. Cushing Disease. (hypercortisolism, hypertension, hyperglycemia, and hirsutism)
Autosomal dominant disorder characterized by the production of rbcs that are sphere-shaped rather than biconcave shape (lacking central pallor). These cells are more prone to hemolysis. Extravascular hemolysis occurs in this case. Hereditary Spherocytosis
