Abstract

The author investigated the nuclear inclusions in H.c.c. from the view points of histopathology and of cytochemistry. The findings may be summarized as follows : The nuclear inclusions of the disease were fell into two types, the one, granular inclusion bodies and the other, homogeneous inclusion bodies. It is believed that the former grow into the latter. From the distribution of the inclusions, the author believes that the virus in H.c.c. is a pantropic virus. The inclusion bodies observed in H.c.c. were free from carbohydrate, fat, inorganic iron and crystals. They consisted chiefly of DNA and RNA. They formed a matrix which co-existed with some protein, and showed activity of alkaline phosphatase.
