Hepatitis and copper accumulation in Skye terriers



Hepatitis and copper accumulation in Skye terriers



Veterinary Pathology 25(6): 408-414



Livers of 9 related Skye Terriers were examined for histological changes and copper content. Lesions ranged from hepatocellular degeneration and necrosis (zone 3) with intracanalicular cholestasis and mild inflammation, to chronic hepatitis with cholangioplasia and cirrhosis. Excess copper (801-2257 micro g/g) was related to the severity of cholestasis.
