Figure 5

Photomicrograph of a section from the interpubic ligament obtained at parturition. Picrosirius-haematoxylin staining allowed the identification of eosinophils and collagen fibers. The empty halos (arrow) show collagen degradation surrounding eosinophils. This feature is shown at higher magnification (insert). Low magnification scale bar = 20 μm, inset scale bar = 5 μm.
