Image Number 67 - Liver, amyloidosis

This is a gross specimen of a liver. In comparison to a normal liver, this one has a gray-red and glassy appearance. This is especially noticeable in the areas to the right and left of the "6" mark on the ruler. Had this liver been stained with Lugol's solution, (an iodine containing solution) the amyloid would have stained a mahogany brown.
