Light Micrograph of the Adrenal Cortex
Image ID: 14182
LM of the adrenal cortex. Note the distinctive arrangements and morphology of darker parenchymal cells of the zona glomerulosa under the capsule and pale, lipid-laden spongiocytes of the zona fasciculata. Spongiocytes in this area form radial cords, usually one or two cells thick. A network of thin-walled, fenestrated capillaries occupies intervening spaces. 175×. H&E.
