[Electron miscoscopy studies of liver tissue in patients with amanita phalloides poisoning].

Abstract

Electron microscopic findings of the liver are being described found in 4 patients aged from 12 months to 26 years after poisoning with Amanita phalloides. Marked alterations were seen in nuclei, in the endoplasmic reticulum, and in mitochondria. Morphologic criteria of cholestasis were observed in one patient. Extreme cellular edema was found in two patients. Since our findings differ considerably in several points from those patients with Amanita phalloides poisoning previously reported, one may suppose, that e.g. age, sex, preexisting damage and liver function might be highly important for the extent and form of resulting liver damage.
