Author information

  • 1Department of Pathology, Singapore General Hospital.


Serum specimens for anti-nuclear fluorescence tests are routinely received in our laboratory. Four specimens were spotted to be negative for anti-nuclear fluorescence but positive for fluorescence characteristic of that caused by anti-golgi antibodies. (a) Patient A had acute glomerulonephritis; (b) Patient B had acute viral hepatitis; (c) Patient C had deep vein thrombosis; and (d) Patient D had non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The relevance and possible aetiology of anti-golgi antibodies are also discussed.
