N° 93 - embolic apostematous nephritis (stained with hematoxylin and eosin).At low magnification of the microscope, find foci of suppurative inflammation and bacterial emboli; at high magnification, determine cellular contents of the exudate. What clinical-anatomical form of sepsis does this preparation manifest?

N° 182 -polypous-ulcerous endocarditis (stained with hematoxylin and eosin). Describe the state of the valvular cusps, pay attention to the character of old and fresh destructive changes. Find colonies of bacteria in sedimentations on the cusps and determine cellular contents of the infiltrate near the base of the cusps.
