To the editor: Aggregates of hollow structures resembling microtubules occur frequently in endothelial cells of kidneys from patients with systemic lupus erythematosis (1), and similar inclusions of tubules have been seen in other cells in several human diseases (2). The subject has been explored in articles, letters, and a review in this journal in recent months (3-7). Tubular inclusions similar to those identified in kidney were also found in lymphocytes from patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (8) and have been observed in cultured lymphoid cells in other pathological conditions (3, 4). The relationship of the cytoplasmic aggregates to blood disease
