Histologically, shared CNS lesions among the animals examined were moderate to marked lymphohistiocytic cell perivascular cuffing with marked vasculitis and neuronal degeneration, necrosis, and neurophagia with multifocal microgliosis and satellitosis (Figure 4).
Isolated foci of lymphocytic perivascular cuffing were present in the cerebrum, and mild neuronal satellitosis was present throughout the brain.
Likewise, few brain sections showed satellitosis and definite rod shape neurons and, the later kind of neurons markedly appeared as slender or pole shape under light microscope.

Oligodendrogliomas are part of the infiltrating glial neoplasms and, as such, are characterized by secondary structures of Scherer, which are perineuronal satellitosis, perivascular satellitosis, subpial aggregation, and infiltration of white matter tracts.
Very important gliosis in the brain were presented, with neuronofagia and satellitosis figures, as well as cytoplasmic tigrolisis and acidophilia.
Other incidental lesions diagnosed were lipoma (5%) of the brain, myocardial degeneration (5%), and satellitosis of the heart (5%), ovarian cyst (5%), and urinary bladder cystitis (11%), found in a few animals only, were distributed randomly in the control and PAP-dosed groups.

Neuronal necrosis and satellitosis were also present.
The brain exhibited severe proliferation of glial cells cellular necrosis severe perivascular edema and satellitosis.
Platelet satellitosis occurs occasionally in peripheral blood samples collected in ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid anticoagulant and thus leads to pseudothrombocytopenia.
