Liver:: Alpha-1-Antitrypsin Deficiency.
Liver:: Alpha-1-Antitrypsin Deficiency. Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency. COMMENT: Bile stasis and a micronodular cirrhosis are seen in this example of enzyme deficiency disease. Can also result in a macronodular cirrhosis

Liver: Viral Hepatitis
Liver: Viral Hepatitis Viral hepatitis. COMMENT ON SPECIMENS (#25-29): These illustrate the range of changes seen in autopsy livers from patients dying from viral hepatitis (liver disease or complications therefrom): #25=a liver that is bile stained and shows dark areas of necrosis but is not as massively necrotic as #26 and #27 (these two livers probably less than 800-900 gms) and although these two do not now show the usual maroon appearance, there has been a marked loss of hepatocytes. #28 and #29 show pale nodular areas interspersed in liver parenchyma which histologically demonstrates, besides necrosis, scarring or cirrhosis (#28 less, #29 more scarring). The nodular areas actually represent attempts at regeneration of hepatocytes.

Liver: Thorotrast Cirrhosis
Liver: Thorotrast Cirrhosis Thorotrast cirrhosis; hemangioendothelial sarcoma. COMMENT: Tumor nodules throughout-black or dark appearance in part due to thorotrast (No number)

Liver: Post-Necrotic Cirrhosis--Hepatic B Viruses Post-necrotic cirrhosis--Hepatic B viruses. COMMENT ON SPECIMENS (#25-29): These illustrate the range of changes seen in autopsy livers from patients dying from viral hepatitis (liver disease or complications therefrom): #25=a liver that is bile stained and shows dark areas of necrosis but is not as massively necrotic as #26 and #27 (these two livers probably less than 800-900 gms) and although these two do not now show the usual maroon appearance, there has been a marked loss of hepatocytes. #28 and #29 show pale nodular areas interspersed in liver parenchyma which histologically demonstrates, besides necrosis, scarring or cirrhosis (#28 less, #29 more scarring).

Liver: Post-Necrotic Cirrhosis
Liver: Post-Necrotic Cirrhosis Post-necrotic cirrhosis with portal vein thrombosis. COMMENT: Specimens (#30-33) all illustrate, whatever the etiology may be, more coarsely nodular (macronodular) livers that usually seen with alcoholic or nutritional cirrhosis, with many of the nodules greater than 1 cm. Broad scars and irregular sized nodules are characteristic.

Liver: Post-Necrotic Cirrhosis
Liver: Post-Necrotic Cirrhosis Post-necrotic cirrhosis; 20 years carbon tetrachloride exposure. COMMENT: Faint fairly large nodules can be appreciated here; there is relatively little fibrosis appreciated grossly. COMMENT: Specimens (#30-33) all illustrate, whatever the etiology may be, more coarsely nodular (macronodular) livers that usually seen with alcoholic or nutritional cirrhosis, with many of the nodules greater than 1 cm. Broad scars and irregular sized nodules are characteristic.

Liver: Polyarteritis Nodosa, Infarction
Liver: Polyarteritis Nodosa, Infarction Polyarteritis nodosa with liver and kidney infarcts. Comment: Almost entire left lobe is infarcted--arrow points to thrombosed hepatic artery branch; many arteries (arrows) near the corticomedullary junctions of kidney (probably arcuate arteries) have abnormally thick walls and are thrombosed--infarcts can be seen (arrows).

Liver: Nodular Regenerative Hyperplasia
Liver: Nodular Regenerative Hyperplasia Nodular regenerative hyperplasia. Comment: As above. COMMENT ON SPECIMENS (#25-29): These illustrate the range of changes seen in autopsy livers from patients dying from viral hepatitis (liver disease or complications therefrom): #25=a liver that is bile stained and shows dark areas of necrosis but is not as massively necrotic as #26 and #27 (these two livers probably less than 800-900 gms) and although these two do not now show the usual maroon appearance, there has been a marked loss of hepatocytes. #28 and #29 show pale nodular areas interspersed in liver parenchyma which histologically demonstrates, besides necrosis, scarring or cirrhosis (#28 less, #29 more scarring).
