Larvae of the fox tapeworm ( Echinococcus multilocularis ) appear hyaline under the microscope

hyaline (from Greek ὕαλος hyalos 'glass') stands for “translucent”, “glassy”, “clear” or “transparent” and occurs, for example, when using a microscope to describe the optical properties of cellular material through which the light “shines”. This property is known as hyalinity .

Hyaline material on light-colored surfaces, viewed with the naked eye, usually looks white.

Hyalinosis describes diseases with the deposition of hyaline material in body tissues, such as in Urbach-Wiethe syndrome or infantile systemic hyalinosis .
