Abstract

The results of a study of 260 patients with different variants of virus hepatitis are described. The regularity of involvement of the intrahepatic bile passages in this disease is demonstrated; morphologically, this regularity manifests itself as catarrhal, obturating or destructive cholangitis. Obturating cholangitis is characteristic of the icteral form of virus hepatitis, especially for its cholestatic variant. The involvement of the intrahepatic bile passages disturbs the normal formation of bile and creates an additional disturbance of the biliary flow; in addition to affecting the liver cells, it plays an important part in the pathogenesis of icterus and cholestasis in virus hepatitis.
