Liver: Acute Fulminant Hepatitis
Liver: Acute Fulminant Hepatitis Acute fulminant 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: 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).

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: Biliary Cirrhosis
Liver: Biliary Cirrhosis Biliary cirrhosis secondary to common bile duct atresia. COMMENT: (#36-#37): Biliary cirrhosis--two examples--of the secondary type, i.e., secondary to atresia (or obstruction) of extrahepatic or intrahepatic bile ducts. Both are examples of micronodular cirrhosis. In the first, ectasia of intrahepatic bile ducts can be appreciated. In the second, appreciate the blood-filled submucosal esophageal varices and the enormous spleen with focal subcapsular infarcts (at top) (compare size of spleen with esophagus to appreciate the splenomegaly).

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: 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: Cardiac Cirrhosis
Liver: Cardiac Cirrhosis Cardiac cirrhosis. COMMENT: You would expect a centrilobular necrosis and fibrosis in cirrhosis resulting from right-sided heart failure. A resulting fine cirrhosis is present usually as in most of this specimen; however, there are a few areas of broader scars in the center of the specimen.

Liver: Cirrhosis of Liver in Cystic Fibrosis
Liver: Cirrhosis of Liver in Cystic Fibrosis Cirrhosis of liver in cystic fibrosis. COMMENT (#40-#41): Although a finely nodular biliary cirrhosis is described, one can also see a coarsely nodular (macronodular) pattern in the livers of longstanding cystic fibrosis.
