Histological evaluations determined fractions of gonads with reproductive acini containing mature and/or developing gametes, acini containing atretic, resorbing gametes, gill filaments without cilia, kidney diverticula cells containing lipofuscin, and digestive cells of digestive glands (termed "digestive cells" hereafter) with condensation of cytoplasm.
The most remarkable of these anomalies were cerebellar folial disorganisation, temporal lobe hypoplasia, ventriculomegaly, occipital encephalocoele, atretic encephalocoele, callosal dysgenesis, periventricular and subcortical heterotopia and hypomyelination.
