Figure 1 Micrographs of liver of (a): control rat liver shows the normal architecture of the hepatic lobule, (b): rat given Staphylococcus bacteria showing the cytoplasm of the hepatocytes has a ground glass and eosinophilic appearance (arrow), dilated sinusoids (short arrows), and lymphocytic infiltration in the portal and periportal areas (arrowheads) is seen, (c) rat given Salmonella bacteria shows apoptosis in the hepatocytes (arrow). Few of the hepatocytes nuclei show karyolysis (short arrows). Notice the activated Kupffer cells (arrowheads), (d) rat given Escherichia coli shows necrosis of the hepatocytes (arrows) around the central vein that appears associated with inflammatory infiltration (short arrows) (hematoxylin and eosin, scale bar: 20 μm).
