Morphological types of hepatocellular hyalin in Indian childhood cirrhosis: an ultrastructural study.

    Morphological variants of intrahepatocytic hyalin in Indian childhood cirrhosis have been analysed by electron microscopy. This structure, morphologically identical with Mallory's alcoholic hyalin, is encountered in three different forms. The most common one is composed of randomly oriented fibrils. The next common type is composed of smudgy homogeneous or finely granular material, while the least common type consists of parallel fibrils with gentle curves giving a 'finger-print' appearance. Fragmented endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes were frequently associated with hyalin suggesting that these organelles contribute to their formation.
