Image Eimeria steidae
The external surface of a liver lobe from a rabbit that died with RHD2. The liver is abnormally congested with blood but a local area of white tissue is identifiable. This coauld have a number of causes so the liver lobe was cut at this level.

Image Eimeria steidae
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. Histology will also show the oocysts as well as showing the typical changes produced by RHD. A pcr test for rhd/rhd2 is required to confirm the presence of this viral disease.

Image Eimeria steidae
Hepatic coccidia obtained by a firmly-made impression with a microscope slide onto the cut surface of an affected liver. The slide was stained with RapidDiff2. The rabbit had died from RHDV2 which made an unavoidable preponderance of erythrocytes even with careful preparation (blotting) of the liver before applying the slide. Three slides were made and this, the third, was the only slide with coccidia. Success with this technique requires careful blotting of the cut surface and some pressure on the sides of the liver so that coccidia are squeezed out of the affected bile ducts.
