Photomicrographs of hematotoxylin and eosin-stained sections of the lung in (LTC) group, 15 d p.i. (HE stain). (1) Bronchiolitis (B), abscessation (A) and hemorrhage (H) (Bar = 200 μm); (1a, 1b, 1c) High power of (Figure 1) to show (1a) bronchiolitis manifested by hyperplasia with destruction and ulceration (u) in the epithelial lining of the bronchioles replaced by inflammatory cell influx, mainly neutrophils (n), resulting in stenosis and collapse in bronchioles with destruction in the muscles, which were inflamed by aggregation of neutrophils; (1b) aggreagation of neutrophils replaced large areas of necrosed pulmonary tissues, forming focal areas of abscessation (a) surrounded by fibrous tissues proliferation and congested blood vessels; (1c) congestion and hemorrhage (h) among the pulmonary tissues with compensatory emphysema (All Bars = 100 μm).
