Has anyone ever noticed any nuclear staining with C4d in a renal biopsy? The control stains great, but the patient's tissue exhibits some nuclear staining in what look to be inflammatory cells. There has been a report of granular and some nuclear staining in lung transplants on structures beyond the vasculature but we haven't seen anything like this in a case of renal rejection.
