Omental milky spots are especially large and numerous in New Zealand Black (NZB) mice, which are known to develop spontaneous autoimmune diseases. We investigated omental milky spots in NZB mice by light and electron microscopy. The milky spots were composed of abundant lymphocytes/plasma cells with macrophages, neutrophils, eosinophils, megakaryocytes, and various stromal cells. In addition, clustered neutrophils in various maturation stages with occasional mitotic figures were frequently… CONTINUE READING
