A cytotoxic T cell (2) is localized within the sinusoid (3) in the liver (8), surrounded by erythrocytes (1) and debris. The lymphocyte with an irregular indented nucleus shows juxtanuclearly partly swollen Golgi areas (*) and aggregation of mitochondria (4) in the cytoplasm.
Few dense-stained granules (5) and pleiomorphic structures (6) are present in the vicinity of the Golgi area.
