Figure 4: Photomicrograph of sections of the rat liver after 14 days of treatment with silymarin, 250 mg and 500 mg of extract (plates 4, 5, and 6, respectively) compared to control (normal, olive oil and CCl4;Plates 1, 2, and 3, respectively). Plates 1 and 2: A-hepatocyte, B-sinusoids, C-central vein. Plate 3: A-macrovesicular steatosis, B-moderate vascular congestion, C-mild periportal infiltrates of inflammatory cells. Plate 4: A-patchy macrovesicular steatosis (100 mg silymarin). Plate 5: A-patchy macrovesicular steatosis (250 mg of extract). Plate 6: A-normal hepatocyte and B-mild portal congestion (500 mg of extract). Sections were stained with H and E ×400
