The biopsy specimen from the left thigh demonstrated an unremarkable epidermis, with an edematous papillary and reticular dermis. There was a moderate interstitial dermal lymphocytic infiltrate, with the greatest intensity in the upper dermis. Occasional large histiocytes within the dermis were noted to contain abundant trophozoites that were consistent with T gondii (Figure 3, arrows). Trophozoites were also noted within the subcutis, without associated reaction.
