Fine structural observations of the hepatopancreas of Saduria entomon (Linnaeus, 1758) infected with Cryptococcus laurentii (Kufferath) Skinner revealed distinct pathological changes in epithelial cells A and B. The lesions were characterized by a distortion of microvilli, disorganization of the basal labyrinthial system, and abnormal arrangement of nuclear chromatin in A and B cells. In A cells mitochondria are damaged. In B cells there appear numerous secondary lysosomes, and the endoplasmic reticulum is reduced and turns vesicular. In all A cells pathological changes were similar, while in B cells the level of their destruction varied.
