Caption: Alcoholic hepatitis. Light micrograph of a section through the liver of a patient with alcoholic hepatitis. Mallory bodies, accumulations of eosinophilic (granular) material (black) in the cytoplasm of the liver cells, are seen here. Alcoholic hepatitis is an inflammatory condition caused by prolonged heavy consumption of alcohol. It can lead to cirrhosis (scarring) and ultimately liver failure and death. Symptoms may include abdominal pain, jaundice and low fever. With abstinence from alcohol the liver can often heal itself, although in severe cases a liver transplant may be needed. Masson's trichome stain. Magnification: x 110 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
