Hepatic hyaline globules, similar to those reported in some human livers, were observed in liver tissue from an Eclectus parrot (Eclectus roratus). The cytoplasmic inclusions were periodic acid-Schiff positive and diastase resistant and failed to stain by acid-fast or Congo red techniques. Ultrastructurally, the hepatic globules were composed of granular amorphous material with small peripheral striations that extended into the cytoplasm.
