This photomicrograph revealed histopathologic changes found in a liver tissue autopsy specimen, from a child who died of Reye's syndrome. The hepatocytes, or liver cells, are seen as pale staining, due to the accumulation of intracellular fat droplets. The tissue section was harvested from a frozen section, stained using the Oil Red O, and hematoxylin technique, which highlighted the intracellular fat globules.
