Figure 2: (a) Close-up of a foreign body giant cell seen bloated with sporocysts in the upper half, and the nuclei pushed to edges (hematoxylin and eosin; original magnification, ×1000). (b) Same foreign body giant cell (as in (a)) in the upper part, with another one on the lower end. Thick-walled sporocysts with pinkish nutritional material in the lower and upper edges, two foreign body giant cells in the middle and a dense chronic inflammatory infiltrate (Periodic acid Schiff stain; original magnification, ×400)
