Abstract

Liver tissue from 21 Chinese military recruits with hepatitis B (HB) antigenemia was examined by electron microscopy. Fine structural abnormalities of the endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, and bile canaliculi were frequently present. Nuclear abnormalities were not prominent, and no intranuclear virus like particles were found. Most striking was a pattern of proliferation of the endoplasmic reticulum associated with intracisternal filaments and particles. The possible relation of this cytoplasmic alteration to HB virus replication deserves further study.
