Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ... intra-lobular fibrous tissue, though this is not at all a prominent feature of the specimen. The most conspicuous change in the stroma is a marked periacinous infiltration of mononuclear cells, practically all of which are of the small, round variety. Similar, but less extensive accumulations are present around the ducts. Many of the acini and ducts show marked distention, several of the former having in certain instances coalesced to form cysts, some of which are of large size. These cysts are lined by one or several layers of cuboidal or slightly flattened cells and possess a fibrous wall which in many instances is quite thick. Some of the cysts are partially filled by large cells having a more or less deeply stained periphery, the interior of which is made up of granular material containing numerous small, transparent, circular areas that are apparently fat globules. In some of these cells the granules predominate, in others the fat globules are more numerous. Nuclei are present in some, being fiattened and peripherally placed in those cells containing most fat. In addition to the distinct cells are large masses of debris evidently resulting from cell fragmentation. In some of the cysts there is distinct evidence that these large cells are in process of formation from the lining cells which increase in size, become globular, and finally show within them the presence of fat. Sections stained for elastic tissue show no evident increase in that tissue, though there is possibly some splitting of the elastic laminae of the blood-vessels.
