Figure 2: (a) Horizontal sections through the isthmus level reveal overall preserved follicular architecture and preserved sebaceous glands. Note the absence of terminal follicles and the presence of atrophic germ like follicular structures surrounded by eosinophilic amorphous material (H and E, ×4); (b) an atrophic follicular structure reminiscent of secondary follicular germ (telogen germinal units) surrounded by compact amorphous esionophilc material outlined as a cast (H and E, ×40); (c) congo red stain under polarized light highlights the apple birefringence of the amyloid in the dermis (red arrows). Normal collagen, as an in-built control remains yellow under the polarized light (blue arrows)
