In the interfollicular regions of tail skin specimen removed from fatty acid mixture-treated mice, granular cells with prominent nucleus and cytoplasm with the typical keratohyalin granules were found in the epidermal stratum (Fig.
Biopsy was consistent with marked epidermal acanthosis and hyperkeratosis inter and intracellular spaces as a result of suprabasal cytolysis and multiple perinuclear vacuoles and large clumped keratohyalin granules in the spinous and granular layers (Figure 4).
Electron microscopic findings include lipid-like vacuoles in the corneocytes and granulocytes reduction in tonofilaments and irregular keratohyalin granules.
