Crystalline cytoplasmic inclusions in the liver cells of two mongrel dogs

M. Djaldetti, N. Feller

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Crystalline inclusions were found in the cytoplasmic matrix of the liver cells in 2 out of 5 healthy mongrel dogs. The crystals were rectangular, with fine granular structure and free from the surrounding membrane. Their appearance was different from the intramitochondrial crystalline inclusions described in human and dog livers, as well as from those observed in the livers of other species. The significance of this unique finding remains unclear, but it is suggested that these inclusions represent crystalized protein.
