A part of the eikonal-type contributions to the eμ large-angle high-energy scattering cross-section is considered in a quasi-elastic experimental set-up. In addition to virtual corrections, we examine inelastic processes with emission of one and two soft real photons and soft lepton and pion pairs. Virtual photon contributions are given within a logarithmic accuracy. Box-type Feynman amplitudes with leptonic and a hadronic vacuum polarization insertion and double-box ones are considered explicitly. Wherever appropriate, the analytic expressions obtained are compared with those predicted by the structure function approach.
