Figure 3 Muscle section of Trichinella spiralis-infected control mouse (a and b) and infected treated mouse (c and d) (hematoxylin and eosin) showing the following: (a) large number of encysted larva inside muscle fibers surrounded by thick capsule and inflammatory cellular infiltrate (arrows) (×100); (b) higher magnification of encysted larva inside the muscles (×200); (c) heavy inflammatory cellular infiltrate surrounding encysted larva and its capsule showed areas of vacuolation (curved arrow), thinning out, and splitting (arrow) (×400); and (d) degenerated muscles in the form of swelling, loss of striation, and hyaline appearance (×100). Insit: higher magnification of (d) (×200).
