In our recent study, we specifically emphasize the potential role of the Russell modification of the Movat pentachrome stain
in the histochemical assessment of selective crystalline particles in lung tissue.
The modified Russell Movat pentachrome stain (MMPS) is an exceptional histochemical technique that highlights a number of tissue structural components in a single slide.
In summary, the modified Russell Movat pentachrome stain, in addition to its time-honored application in evaluating connective tissue, can be very useful in suggesting the identity of particulates, especially birefringent particles like MCC, in lung tissue.
For each case, sections stained with hematoxylin-eosin and either Verhoeff-van Gieson elastic stain or Movat pentachrome stain
It contained "jelly"-like contents that on microscopic examination were on the outer part of the artery wall; the contents were bluish by routine hematoxylin, phloxine, and saffron and Movat pentachrome stains
(Figure 1; M indicates media; A, adventitial material).
