Figure 2: FNAC of nerve with features of lepromatous leprosy. (a) Case 27; Highly cellular smear with wavy necrotic nerve tissue (red arrow) with polymorphs, lymphocytes, histiocytes, scattered foamy macrophages with granular dirty proteinaceous background (20 x; MGG). (b) Case 27; FNA of right greater auricular nerve showing necrotic aspirate with multiple non foamy histiocytes (red arrow), foamy cells (black arrow) and polymorphs (40 x; MGG). (c) Case 5; Multiple foamy histiocytes (20 x; MGG). (d) Case 1; FNA from left radial cutaneous nerve showing multiple AFB (L) [Red rectangle] (100 x; Modified ZN stain)
