The cell shown here is typical of the Alder-Reilly anomaly. It was observed in a child with gargoylism. The anomaly is characterized by prominent red-staining granules similar to those of toxic granulation. The anomaly is not specific for any one of the mucopolysaccharidoses but it was first discovered in Hurler's syndrome. Many Alder-Reilly-like granulations may be seen following bone marrow transplants and chemotherapy.
