COVER: The extracranial carotid artery is prone to atherosclerosis. Within the plaque there are segments of maximal and minimal disease. Pentachrome staining of the minimally diseased segment demonstrates an intact internal elastic lamina and thin intima. The maximally diseased segment demonstrates an abnormally thickened intima, intra-plaque necrosis and hemorrhage, a non-intact internal elastic lamina, and a thin media segment. (See Zayed et al., p. 730.)...
