HISTOLOGY OF THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM

Powerpoint is by Jose Danilo B. Diestro. Pictures are by the entire MDL 9 (D’s and E’s) of UP MED 2013 Warnings: 5. This powerpoint has not been confirmed by any doctor because we only had 1 lab session. 6. Read your lab manual as you view this powerpoint (they are in the same order) 7. Not all structures were labeled. 8. The parathyroid section suffers from a bad class slide with poor staining References • Junqueira and Carneiro. Basic Histology: Text and Atlas. 11th Ed. • Young et al. Wheater’s Functional Hisology: A Text and Colour Atlas. 5th Ed. As always don’t blame the powerpoint if you make mistakes.
