Figure 2: Elastic fibers are stained black. (a) Elastic fiber morphology in normal mucosa long fibers (VVG, photomicrograph 20×). (b) Elastic fiber morphology in oral squamous cell carcinoma - long fibers adjacent to tumor islands (VVG, photomicrograph 20×). (c) Elastic fiber morphology in oral squamous cell carcinoma - clumped elastic fibers adjacent to tumor islands (VVG, photomicrograph 20×). (d) Elastic fiber morphology in oral squamous cell carcinoma - fragmented elastic fibers adjacent to tumor islands (VVG, photomicrograph 20×)
