Figure 3: Collagen IV: (a) Normal myocardium (control heart) highlighting the normal endomysial distribution of collagen IV encircling the myocytes. (b) Variation in expression of collagen IV in a case of dilated cardiomyopathy, with reduced intensity and proportion of staining. Allred score 5 (c) photomicrograph depicting reduced intensity and patchy staining. Allred score (d) case of dilated cardiomyopathy with Allred score 4
