Use of dark-field and fluorescence microscopy to examine extracellular hyaline accumulation in the mouse.

Small foci of diethylstilbestrol-induced extracellular hyaline material were visualized within the mouse uterus utilizing dark-field and fluorescence microscopy following conventional hematoxylin and eosin staining. Hyaline was observed throughout the connective tissue stroma as well as between smooth muscle cells of the myometrium. The use of these… (More)
