Cool High Yield Pathology and Histology Slides

Most of the picture/slide question has a way of answering WITHOUT looking at the picture. The picture is their just to confirm your answer. With that in mind, some common slides to know are:

01- CMV (a must!!!)
02- PCP
03- Koilocytes
04- Red neurons
05- Granulation tissue
06- Amyloid
07- Crystals
08- Hepatitis (Apoptotic bodies)
09- EM slide, identify mitochondria, pre/post synaptic vesicles
10- Histo of KW nodules for DM nephropathy
11- Slides/EM/IF for Glomerulonephritis
12- Acute Tubular Necrosis/Acute Pyelonephritis (a must!!!)
13- Caseous necrosis
14- Heart hypertrophy/Dilation/Vegetations/Rupture/Infarction/Fibrosis/HOCM (all very HY!!)
15- ARDS/HMD

These are the ones that I frequently encountered in UW/NBME as well as the exam. So know them really well. You can use google to look at all these images, or webpath.

Also, you should be able to identify Type 2 Pneumocyte on electron microscopy.
I came across this many times in nbmes and other qbanks, and its so hard to label it among other cells in those black and white pics.
