In conclusion, it is now clear that the liver of the African ostrich has its own unique characteristics: the hepatic lobules were not obvious, while the hepatic portal area was highly prevalent; the hepatocellular cord has two forms: 1) two to seven hepatocytes that form a clustered arrangement; and 2) two-layers of hepatocyte, that surround the central vein lines and form a radiating shape; the wall of the hepatic sinusoid consists of one layer of endothelial cells that was not continuous.
The ear continues to grow slowly throughout adolescence; particularly, the length of the lobule increases.
If the pregnancy is aborted, this creates more places for cancers to start, because the third trimester maturation to type 3 and 4 lobules never is allowed to happen.

Results: On histological examination, animals of group B showed altered structure of hepatic lobules with deranged radiating hepatocytes, many of which manifested ballooning degeneration and statisti-cally significant increase in their size (p-value less than 0.
The tunica albuginea of both testes and ovaries had no uniform thickness all over the year but, it reached a maximum thickness during winter and became thin during spring and summer due to pressure exerted on it by the distended testicular lobules or enlarged mature follicles, and began to increase again during autumn.
Because of their size, the sections offered many histologically well-defined classic liver lobules--generally about 15-20--for objective assessment of FVIIIRAg immunostaining and its intralobular distribution within the lobules.
