Histopathology of liver in cattle spontaneously infected with Fasciola hepatica and Fasciola gigantica in Iran



Histopathology of liver in cattle spontaneously infected with Fasciola hepatica and Fasciola gigantica in Iran



Iranian Journal of Public Health1983; 11(1/2): 1-21



The livers of slaughtered cattle infected with F. hepatica were usually irregularly shaped, with prominent bile ducts seen on the liver surface as greyish-white, firm-branching streaks. Atrophy of the left lobe due to fibrosis and ischaemia was evident. In section the main ducts had walls consisting of hard fibrotic tissue with a pipe-stem appearance and calcium deposition in the inner layer. Livers infected with F. gigantica were more normal and there was less calcium deposition.
