Lung biopsy - Low power H&E stained section of right lung showing preservation of a small artery, but destruction of a small bronchus by a granulomatous process. - 3/11/98   , Image D.  Lung biopsy - Low power elastin stain of right lung showing preservation of the normal elastin fibres around a small artery, but loss of elastin around a small bronchus, indicating bronchial destruction. - 3/11/98 -  , Image E. Chest X-ray showing progression of infiltrates, despite azithomycin and itraconazole. She subsequently responded to large doses of corticosteroids. 3/11/98 , Image F.
