Morphology and Pathomorphology


Ultrastructural changes in the hepatocytes under the influence of alcohol were studied. The greatest changes were found in the mitochondria. Physical exertion and a low protein diet have a marked effect on the degree of alcohol poisoning. The first factor reduces whereas the second aggravates the harmful action of alcohol.
