Adrenal Gland - Amyloid - Gallery

Image of amyloid in the adrenal gland from a male B6C3F1/N mouse in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Amyloid in a male B6C3F1/N mouse from a chronic study. There is homogeneous, amorphous, pale eosinophilic material (amyloid, A) expanding the zona fasciculata and zona reticularis; C = cortex, M = medulla.

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Amyloid in a male B6C3F1/N mouse from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). The homogeneous, amorphous, pale eosinophilic material (amyloid, A) in the zona fasciculata and zona reticularis separates and replaces the cortical cells; C = cortex, M = medulla.

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Amyloid in a male Swiss Webster mouse from a chronic study. A thick circumferential band of homogeneous, amorphous, pale eosinophilic material (amyloid, A) largely replaces the cells of the zona reticularis; C = cortex, M = medulla.
Image of amyloid in the adrenal gland from a female B6C3F1/N mouse in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Amyloid in a female B6C3F1/N mouse from a chronic study. Abundant, homogeneous, amorphous, pale eosinophilic material (amyloid, A) separates and replaces the cells inner cortex; C = cortex, M = medulla.

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Amyloid in a female B6C3F1/N mouse from a chronic study (same animal as in Figure 4). Amyloid deposits in the inner cortex (arrow) stained with Congo red appear dull reddish orange under nonpolarized light.
