Adrenal Gland, Cortex - Degeneration, Cystic - Gallery

Image of degeneration, cystic in the adrenal gland cortex from a female Sprague-Dawley rat in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Degeneration, Cystic in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study. The cortex is distended by dilated spaces filled with proteinaceous fluid and/or blood (CD).

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Degeneration, Cystic in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). Cystic degeneration is characterized by dilated spaces filled with proteinaceous fluid and/or blood and scattered vacuolated cortical cells.

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Degeneration, Cystic in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). Cavitated spaces (C) delineated by attenuated cortical cells (arrow) are filled with proteinaceous fluid.

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Degeneration, Cystic in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study. Multiple irregular cavitations (asterisk) formed by loss of cortical cells expand and distort the cortex (C) and compress the adjacent medulla (M).

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Degeneration, Cystic in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 4). Multiple irregular cavitations (asterisk) formed by loss of cortical cells contain proteinaceous fluid.
