Renal Amyloid by Electron microscopy

Electron microscopy shows massive expansion of the mesangium by fibrillar material with randomly oriented thin fibrils with a diameter of 10 to 12 nm, often extending to basement membranes as in this case (transmission electron microscopy; original magnification x8,000).

By electron microscopy, amyloid appears as randomly oriented thin fibrils, 10 to 12 nm in diameter, with a loose, flocculent background (transmission electron microscopy; original magnification x51,250).

Amyloid infiltration through the basement membrane with resulting feathery spikes with basement membrane material and delicate amyloid fibrils are shown in this case (transmission electron microscopy; original magnification x20,250).

Cutaneous Horn of the Nose

Cutaneous Horn of the Nose which also named Cornu Cutaneum of the nose is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. The horn is composed of compacted keratin.

Cutaneous horns usually arise on sun-exposed skin but can occur even in sun-protected areas. Tenderness at the base of the lesion and lesions of larger size favor malignancy. Histologic examination is recommended to rule out malignant changes. The most common malignancy is squamous cell carcinoma. More than half of all cutaneous horns are benign.

Disorganized globe

Right pseudoptosis due to small malformed globe. The right orbit is also small due to the small globe volume.

Shrunken and disorganized globe.

This 4 year-old girl was born with a disorganized right globe. Consequently, the right orbit was small giving to facial asymmetry. Enucleation was performed and an acrylic ball was inserted to improve the facial appearance.
