This paper describes the histopathological features and the cellular distribution of T lymphocytes (CD3), B cells (CD79a), immunoglobulin (IgG, IgA, IgM)-bearing plasma cells, macrophages (Mac387 and alpha-1-antitrypsin), MHC class II antigen and S-100 protein in hepatic white spots associated with naturally occurring Ascaris suum parasitism in 35 pigs. Hepatic granulomas were observed in 10 pigs, whereas lymphoid proliferation with a diffuse or lymphonodular pattern was the main… CONTINUE READING
