Example of trichrome stain
This is an example of a muscle specimen stained with Gomori trichrome. On trichrome, muscle typically shows up as a greenish blue (or in this case, just green). This particular muscle biopsy is an example of nemaline rod myopathy. The nemaline rods are tiny dark spots visible in most of the muscle fibers. This is an example of something we'd see on trichrome that we wouldn't see on H&E.
