Under a magnification of 100X, this hematoxylin-eosin-stained (H&E) photomicrograph depicts the cytoarchitectural changes found in a liver tissue specimen extracted from a Lassa fever patient. In this particular view you’ll note a region of “focal necrosis without specific topographic distribution, thereby, isolating some layers of recognizable hepatocytes. There are numerous pycnotic nuclei, and dense infiltrates, predominantly of lymphocytes, within the periportal space".
