Another frequent finding is fibrotic, avascular villi with hemosiderin deposition.
Melanine-like granules, such as hemosiderin and lipofuscin, may play an important role in the differential diagnosis.
She favors using intense pulsed light for donor sites because it has filters that address both melanin and hemosiderin, superiority for scar erythema, and deeper penetration with greater speed to treat large surface areas.
Histopathological examination showed epidermal pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia, dilation and proliferation of the vascular vessels with edematous vascular endothelium, erythrocytes extravasation and deposits of hemosiderin; dense mixed infiltration of plasma cells, neutrophils, and eosinophils were noted in the dermis [Figure 1]c and [Figure 1]d.
Endometrial ducts lined with cuboidal to columnar cells, surrounded by focal areas of chronic inflammation, fibrous tissue, and hemosiderin with presence of hemosiderin-filled macrophages are highly indicative of endometriosis.
The histopathological features showed presence of mucous cells, vacuolated cells, spongiosis, micro-abscesses, cholesterol crystals, hemosiderin and inflammatory infiltrate.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diffusion, perfusion, and MRI spectroscopy revealed multiple lesions of various sizes in the multiple areas and multiple scattered hyperintensity areas containing hemosiderin on the T2-weighted images (Figures 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F).
In the lungs of calves A and B, there was intra-alveolar edema and alveolar macrophages with intracytoplasmic hemosiderin granules ("heart failure cells").
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) identified: multiple foci of marked hypointensity on susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI), evidenced in the corpus callosum, deep white matter, bilateral basal ganglia, thalamus and middle cerebellar peduncles, compatible with hemosiderin deposits, possibly petechial hemorrhages (Fig.
MR revealed diffusion restriction of the solid tumor part and peripheral susceptibility effects, e.g., hemosiderin deposits.
It showed evidence of synovial thickening, and on gradient echography, it showed spotty and irregular hyposignals compatible with the presence of hemosiderin. There also was associated soft tissue edema around the above-described lesion.
