Transverse frozen sections of a vastus lateralis muscle biopsy of a child with nemaline myopathy. Hematoxylin-eosin stain fails to demonstrate the rod-shaped structures or any specific myopathic features (left). Modified Gomori trichrome stain reveals (red) nemaline rods within (green) myofibrils (right). (x250) (Contributed by Dr. Susan Iannaccone.)
