Figure 2 Referral evaluations for diagnosis of alveolar echinococcosis. A: The hematoxylin and eosin stain of paraffin sections displays the laminated layer as a narrow band (long arrows). The germinal layer is marked by short arrows; B: Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) stain shows a strongly PAS-positive basophilic laminated layer displaying a bizarre narrow structural pattern. The long arrows indicate the typical severe inflammatory process associated with the characteristic tubular growth pattern of the parasite.
