Modified Kinyoun is useful for distinguishing between Nocardia sp. or Mycobacterium fortuitum and Actinomyces sp. 2 & 3. In well-formed granulomas, Histoplasma and Cryptococcus tend to be scant in number and nonviable (Histoplasma) or paucicapsulated (Cryptococcus); GMS is the preferred stain in this situation. 5. Sporothrix is usually very scant in cytologic and histologic samples and poorly stained by Papanicolaou stain unless a Splendore-Hoeppli phenomenon is seen; in GMS, the yeast forms have elongated, cigar-shaped blastoconidia.

Abundant degenerating eosinophils, extracellular eosinophilic granules, and blue-colored Charcot-Leyden crystals are seen (Romanovski, ×1000). Figure 4-17. Excisional biopsy of liver mass in a case of visceral larva migrans. Abundant eosinophils are seen surrounding a portion of nematode larva. Dot-like internal structures are often seen in cytologic and histologic preparations of nematodes (hematoxylin and eosin, ×1000). Figure 4-18. Fungal mucus plug in a bronchial brushing slide. Within strands of pale blue-colored mucin, there are sheets of eosinophils in the lower half of image and a Charcot-Leyden crystal in the upper center (Papanicolaou, ×400).

A, Large blue cocci within macrophage (Romanovski stain). B, Cocci are gram-positive (Gram stain). C, Blue-colored bacilli admixed with degenerating inflammatory cells (Romanovski stain). D, Gram-negative bacilli are seen (Gram stain). All magnifications are ×3000. and cystic degeneration within metastatic SCC.
