Image Number 68 - Spleen, amyloidosis, nodular

Notice the large hyaline masses arranged diagonally across the screen. The upper left and the lower right areas of the field are occupied by normal white pulp. Amyloidosis of the spleen is seen in two forms - the sago spleen in which amyloid depositis are limited to the follicles, and the lardaceous spleen in which amyloid is deposited in the walls of the splenic sinusoids and spares the follicles. It is not clear which form is seen in this picture.
