This week's case is a bit different in that I don't have an exact diagnosis for you. However, I have a general diagnosis and would actually like to get your opinion, dear readers, on what you think these structures are. The case was generously donated by Microbe Man. The photographs are H&E stained sections of appendix from child with acute appendicitis. The 4 objects measure 39, 46, 57 and 76 micrometers in greatest dimension and seem to be encased in a refractile shell.
I will share with you next week how we signed this case out.
