dc.description.abstract During chronic Schistosoma mansoni (S. mansoni) infection parasite eggs lodge in the microvasculature of the host¿s liver provoking inflammation that leads to formation of granuloma and fibrosis around trapped eggs. Murine studies have suggested that this is a protective response in that parenchymal cells do not usually suffer direct damage. In mice immunosuppressed by T-cell deprivation or hydrocortisone treatment however, S. mansoni infection is associated with extensive parenchymal damage, thought to be caused by cytotoxic egg products spreading through the tissue. Affected animals suffer focal and disseminated hepatocyte lesions in which individual cells display microvesicular steatosis (numerous cytoplasmic lipid vesicles) and nuclear degeneration. Coincident with the histological evidence of hepatocyte injury there is an increase in liver transaminases in the plasma and immunosuppressed mice suffer significant mortality once S. mansoni egg deposition in the liver begins. en
