In some areas there was only necrotic tissue and in other areas it was associated to hemorrhagic areas or erythrocytes at the periphery of the lesion, and in other sites, besides the necrosis associated or not to hemorrhage, it was visualized macrophagic infiltrate with myelinic rests phagocytized, lymphocytes and plasmocytes.
