Figure 1: Photomicrograph of the liver sections at different magnifications, (a) Control rat: diffuse periportal vacuolar degeneration of hepatocytes with very mild cellular infiltration by mononuclear cells, (b) Sodium arsenite treated rat: there are multiple areas of extensive vacuolar degeneration of hepatocytes, (c) Sodium arsenite and ethanol treated rat: there is severe hepatic degeneration and necrosis (diffuse), (d) Aqueous extract of Aframomum longiscapum seed treated rat: no visible lesion seen, (e) Sodium arsenite + EtOH + aqueous extract of Aframomum longiscapum seed treated rat: mild hepatic degeneration, mild congestion of the portal vessels and mild mononuclear cellular infiltration, (f) EtOH alone. plates b, d and e are (×400) and a, c and f are (×100) magnification
