Canals of Hering
|Canals of Hering|
The canal of Hering leads to the bile ductule
The canals of Hering are destroyed early in primary biliary cholangitis and may be primary sites of scarring in methotrexate toxicity. Research has indicated the presence of intraorgan stem cells of the liver that can proliferate in disease states, so-called oval cells.
They are named for Ewald Hering.
