An intensely eosinophilic globule in the liver is a Councilman body that is indicative of an underlying hepatic disease, viral Hepatitis (usually Hepatitis A), or Yellow fever. This represents a hepatocyte undergoing APOPTOSIS.
Recall that Yello Fever is caused by flavivirus/arbovirus transmitted by the Aedes mosquito causing black vomitus, jaundiced eyes, and the Councilman bodies (intensely eosinophilic apoptotic globules in the liver).
To also answer this question, one had to know that apoptosis caused by activation of the mitochondrial intrinsic pathway is triggered by cellular damage such as radiation, oxidative damage, ischemia, or toxin exposure and leads to release of cytochrome C from mitochondria. Cytochrome C in turn leads to the activation of caspase enzymes. Viral hepatitis primarily leads to apoptosis through the extrinsic rather than the intrinsic pathway.
