Figure 7: Microphotograph showing features of Sjogren's syndrome (a-d) sural nerve biopsy, (e and f) minor salivary gland, from lip biopsy). (a and b) Small epineurial vessels showing perivascular cupping with lymphomononuclear cells is highlighted by immunostaining for leukocyte common antigen (LCA); (c and d) K Pal stain shows sectorial pockets of fibre loss, predominantly of small caliber; (e and f) Lymphocytic infiltration around the ducts and acini of salivary glands, well brought out by LCA stain
