Unsaturated lipid droplets in liver sinusoids lining cells in a case of Reye-Morgan-Baral syndrome

  • A. P. Águas


The author reports a case of Reye-Morgan-Baral syndrome presenting osmiophilic-dense lipidic bodies in lining cells of hepatic sinusoids. The different lipidic saturation level between the content of these bodies and the one of lipid droplets of hepatocytes could represent a different response, between hepatocytes and lining cells of liver sinusoids, to excessive circulating lipids.
