Cholangioma, Liver, Rat
The macroscopic appearance of cholangioma is variable. Usually the neoplasms are observed as raised, grayish-white areas of firm consistency. However, in the more cystic forms, cholangiomas have a spongy texture and, in the presence of appreciable associated vascular proliferation, the neoplasm is dark-red in color. Multilocular cystic forms have a more irregular surface than those in which there is no significant cyst formation.
