Figure 4: Aspirate of a left cervical swelling in a gecko


Small numbers of thick strands of smooth extracellular matrix (supportive stroma, presumptive) was seen between the epithelial cell clusters (arrow). Note the single prominent nucleoli and fine chromatin of the epithelial cells in the upper right hand cluster (modified Wright’s stain, 50x objective). The crystals resemble the hemp-seed variant of calcium oxalate in equine urine (see urinalysis album, urine crystal gallery).
