Figure 2. Transverse sections of extensor digitorum longus muscle 4 h after receiving A: 50 µl NaCl injections, B: 0.25 µg/g of venom, and C: 2.0 µg/g of venom. A, Panoramic view of control muscle showing normal cells and organization. In B note the lesion of peripheral muscle fibers and the disorganization of the bundles. In C note the complete degeneration of muscle fibers (bar = 110 µm).
