Under a magnification of 1125X, this photomicrograph of a sample of brain tissue, revealed the presence of a cytomegalic inclusion cell, located outside the lumen of a brain capillary. With its enlarged, darkly-stained nucleus, such cells are also known as owl-eye inclusion cells, and are due to cytomegalic inclusion disease, caused by the cytomegalovirus.
