Eye, Vitreous - Fibrosis - Gallery

Image of vitreous fibrosis in the eye from a male F344/N rat in a chronic study
Eye, Vitreous - Fibrosis in a male F344/N rat from a chronic study. There is loose fibrous connective tissue (asterisk) in the vitreous space between a cataractous lens (L) and a detached, degenerate retina (R).

Eye, Vitreous - Fibrosis in a male F344/N rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 1). There is loose fibrous connective tissue (asterisk) with space scattered pigmented macrophages (arrow) in the vitreous; L = cataractous lens.
Image of vitreous fibrosis in the eye from a female F344/N rat in a chronic study
Eye, Vitreous - Fibrosis in a female F344/N rat from a chronic study. There is advanced fibrosis in the vitreous space characterized by dense fibrous connective tissue (asterisk) with chronic inflammation (arrow); L = cataractous lens, R = detached, degenerate retina.

Eye, Vitreous - Fibrosis in a female F344/N rat from a chronic study (higher magnification of Figure 3). The advanced fibrosis is characterized by dense fibrous connective tissue (asterisk) in the vitreous space with chronic inflammation (arrow); L = cataractous lens, R = detached degenerate retina.
Image of vitreous fibrosis in the eye from a female F344/N rat in a chronic study
Eye, Vitreous - Fibrosis in a female F344/N rat from a chronic study. There is fibrosis (asterisk) and infiltration by migrating reactive epithelial cells (arrow) from the retinal pigment epithelium (arrowhead) in the vitreous space in the eye; R = detached and degenerate retina.
