Image of acute inflammation in the lung from a male Wistar Han rat in a subchronic study
Lung - Inflammation, Acute in a male Wistar Han rat from a subchronic study. The majority of the inflammatory cells are neutrophils; there is also a small amount of hemorrhage.

Lung - Inflammation, Acute in a male Wistar Han rat from a subchronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). The majority of the inflammatory cells are neutrophils, but there are also mononuclear cells, including alveolar macrophages.

Lung, Bronchiole - Inflammation, Suppurative in a male B6C3F1/N mouse from a chronic study. Degenerate neutrophils fill the bronchiole.
Image of suppurative inflammation in the lung from a female B6C3F1/N mouse in a chronic study
Lung - Inflammation, Suppurative in a female B6C3F1/N mouse from a chronic study. There are numerous large, foamy, activated alveolar macrophages amid the degenerate neutrophils.

Lung - Inflammation, Chronic active in a male F344/N rat from a subchronic study (higher magnification of Figure 13). There is a mixture of lymphocytes, macrophages, and neutrophils, with a small amount of alveolar hemorrhage.
Image of chronic-active inflammation in the lung from a male F344/NTac rat in a subchronic study
Lung - Inflammation, Chronic active in a male F344/NTac rat from a subchronic study. The perivascular and interstitial inflammation in this control rat is consistent with Pneumocystis carinii infection (formerly rat respiratory virus).
