Opportunistic Infections

Figure 4. Occasionally, cytomegalovirus manifests as small microgranulomas scattered randomly throughout the lobules, as shown here. In these cases, inclusion bodies may not be detected and immunoperoxidase staining is needed, which can highlight infected cells before they show any cyotmegalic change(see next photomicrograph).

Please mail comments, corrections or suggestions to the TPIS administration at the UPMC.
