Adrenal Gland, Cortex - Hypertrophy - Gallery

Image of hypertrophy in the adrenal gland cortex from a female Sprague-Dawley rat in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Hypertrophy in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study. There is a well-demarcated, noncompressive focal area in which the cells are enlarged (FH). C = cortex, M = medulla.

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Hypertrophy in a female Sprague-Dawley rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). The cells in this focus of hypertrophy (FH) have increased amounts of pale eosinophilic cytoplasm.
Image of hypertrophy in the adrenal gland cortex from a male B6C3F1/N mouse in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Hypertrophy in a male B6C3F1/N/N mouse from a chronic study. There is a focus of enlarged cells (arrows) in the cortex that slightly compresses the adjacent parenchyma; there is also subcapsular hyperplasia (SCH).

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Hypertrophy in a male B6C3F1/N/N mouse from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 3). The cells in this focus of hypertrophy (FH) have increased amounts of pale eosinophilic cytoplasm and slightly enlarged nuclei.
Image of hypertrophy in the adrenal gland cortex from a male F344/N rat in a chronic study
Adrenal gland, Cortex - Hypertrophy in a male F344/N rat from a chronic study. Diffuse cortical hypertrophy results in pronounced overall gland enlargement. M = medulla.

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Hypertrophy in a male F344/N rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 5). The hypertrophic cortical cells (arrows) have increased cytoplasmic volume.

Adrenal gland, Cortex - Normal in a male F344/N rat from a chronic study. A normal adrenal gland at the same magnification as Figure 5 6 is shown for comparison. M = medulla.
