Hepatic cirrhosis occurring in a young woodchuck (Marmota monax) due to vertical transmission of woodchuck hepatitis virus (WHV)



Hepatic cirrhosis occurring in a young woodchuck (Marmota monax) due to vertical transmission of woodchuck hepatitis virus (WHV)



Journal of Veterinary Science 4(2): 199-201



Histological and clinicopathological findings in a woodchuck (Marmota monax) vertically infected with woodchuck hepatitis virus (WHV) were presented. The liver exhibited marked cirrhotic changes, which was characteristic of the pre-transformation phase of WHV. Upon necropsy, ascites was observed along with nodular appearance of the liver. Microscopically, focal hepatocyte necrosis and inflammatory cells were observed in the midzonal and periportal areas of the liver.
