The freshly cut section of liver of a young male wild rabbit that died from RDH2, shows several areas of fibrosis involving the bile ducts. There is also a normal bile duct running across the section. This appearance is very suggestive of hepatic coccidiosis. Cytology can be used to confirm the presence of coccidial oocysts.
