Figure 3: Lupus vulgaris: (a) hyperplastic stratified squamous epithelium and multiple epithelioid cell granuloma in the dermis (H and E, ×5); (b) tuberculoid granuloma composed of epithelioid histiocytes, scattered Langhans' type of giant cells, and lymphocytic infiltrate. There is minimal caseation necrosis (H and E, ×40); (c) Ziehl.Neelsen stain for acid.fast bacilli demonstrates magenta-colored rod-shaped bacilli (circle) in the lesion (oil immersion, ×100)
