Figure 1.
Figure 1. A: Scanning magnification of the prostate tissue shows extensive replacement by granulomatous inflammation (x 1000; H and E); B: High power view demonstrates small foci of necrosis within the granulomas (x 4000; H and E).
Figure 2.
Figure 2. PA chest x-ray (A) and coronal CT reconstruction (B) reveal a large septated cystic lesion replacing most of the superior segment of the right upper lobe (white arrows).
Figure 3.
Figure 3. A: PAS stain reveals crescent formation within the glomerulus with central collapse of the capillary loops (x 2000; PAS stain); B: Higher magnification shows segmental areas of fibrinoid necrosis (x 4000; PAS stain).
