Figure 2: (a) Microphotograph from biopsy of a nodular non-tattooed lesion showing predominantly epitheloid cell granuloma, scant lymphocytes and a foreign body giant cell with an asteroid body inside it. (haematoxylin and eosin; original magnification ´400). (b) Microphotograph from biopsy of a nodular tattoo lesion showing predominantly epitheloid cell granuloma, scant lymphocytes and two foreign body giant cells. Brownish clumps of tattoo pigment are seen inside the granuloma as well as inside one foreign body giant cell (haematoxylin and eosin; original magnification ´400)
