Postmortem histopathologic findings in a patient who died of SCLS. a Low power view of the left ventricle demonstrates diffuse myocardial edema, as highlighted in the enclosed area. (Masson’s trichrome histochemical stain, 0.6×) (b) Higher power view shows lace-like interstitial fibrosis between myofibers (Masson’s trichrome, 20×) (c) High power view of myocytes shows marked interstitial edema with an absence of myocyte necrosis (Hematoxylin and eosin, 20×) Immunohistochemical staining (IHC) for CD3 (d) and CD68 (e) show a paucity of inflammatory cells and the presence of scattered fibroblasts and few histiocytes.
