Abstract

The micrometrical observations livers of 24 buffaloes (12 females and 12 males) were conducted. The overall average diameter of hepatocytes of male and female buffalo liver was 14.36±0.48 μ and 14.6±0.49 μ respectively. The average values showed non significant difference between sex, while The male showed a very significant difference and the female did not show a significant difference between regions. The overall average diameter of hepatic sinusoids of male and female buffalo liver was 6.50±0.46 μ and 4.75±0.29 μ respectively. The average values showed significant difference between sex, while male and female showed highly significant difference between the regions.
The overall average diameter of Von-Kupffer cells of male and female buffalo liver was 6.74±0.35 μ and 8.65±0.30 μ, respectively. The average values showed highly significant difference between sex, While the male showed a very significant difference and the female did not show a significant difference between the region. The overall average number of binucleated cells of male and female buffalo liver was 1.32±0.64 per mm2 and 1.97±0.90 per mm2, respectively. The overall average distance between adjacent central vein of male and female buffalo liver was 80.21±3.31 μ and 61.24±3.1 μ, respectively. The average values showed highly significant difference between sex, While the male showed a very significant difference and the female did not show a significant difference between the region. The overall average number of Von-Kupffer cells per mm2 of male and female buffalo liver was 262.06±14.31 per mm2 and 281.61±12.81 per mm2, respectively. The average values showed non significant difference between sex, while male and female showed non significant difference between the regions. The overall average number of central vein per mm2 of male and female buffalo liver was 3.58±0.15 per mm2 and 2.89±0.11 per mm2, respectively. The average values showed a very significant difference between sex, while the difference between male and female was not significant.
