Higher magnification of a corpus albicans.
Description:At higher magnification, the corpus albicans looks a bit like pink cotton candy. There is an abundance of connective tissue but very few cells (nuclei). Thus the staining is pale. Notice, however, the cellular (thus darker) stroma at the edges. PK4892-02. Original mag. 40x. H&E Corpus albicans. Cortex. Ovary. Female Reproductive System.
