Description:This micrograph reveals signs of Schistosomiasis infection of the liver, also known as "pipe stem" cirrhosis; Mag. 500X.
“Pipe stem” cirrhosis occurs when schistosomes infect the liver, i.e. hepatic schistosomiasis, which causes scarring to occur, thereby, entrapping parasites and their ova in and around the hepatic portal circulatory vessels.
