  • α 1-Antitrypsin and α1-arantichymotrypsin are intracellular enzymes found in cells of the monocyte-histiocyte-macrophage series. Their presence in cutaneous infiltrates is demonstrated by employing a peroxidase-antiperoxidase technic on paraffin-embedded sections. A comparative study of the enzymes with intracellular lysozyme has been carried out to assess their individual efficacy as markers of histiocytes in cutaneous infiltrates. © 1982, American Academy of Dermatology, Inc..
