17 Possible Causes for Abdominal Pain, Ascites, Liver Biopsy showing Periportal Necrosis

  • Viral Hepatitis

    Cirrhosis was stabilized and significant clinical improvement was achieved in the third patient--who before the virus therapy was moribund with recurring, diuretic-resistant ascites[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Besides features of viral hepatitis, the presence of typical abdominal pain, high serum amylase, and ultrasound or CT scan features suggested the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] weighting of 23 baseline covariates, statin use was associated with a significant reduction in composite liver decompensation events (HR: 0.55; 95% CI: 0.36-0.83; P .005), ascites[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatitis B

  • Massive Hepatic Necrosis

    A, intraoperative (POD 0) wedge biopsy of the native liver showed massive hepatic necrosis and periportal ductular structure (HE, 200 ).[nature.com] Photograph shows a caput medusae accentuated by a large amount of ascites in a patient being prepared for liver transplantation.[slideshare.net] Case Report A healthy, 30-year-old woman at 32 weeks gestation presented to the emergency department with sudden-onset headache and abdominal pain.[acgcasereports.gi.org]

  • Autoimmune Hepatitis

    In more severe cases, biopsy typically shows periportal necrosis with mononuclear cell infiltrates (piecemeal necrosis) accompanied by variable periportal fibrosis and bile[merckmanuals.com] Ultrasound revealed cirrhosis, ascites, splenomegaly, and an appro- priately grown singleton gestation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Common initial symptoms include fatigue or muscle aches or signs of acute liver inflammation including fever, jaundice, and right upper quadrant abdominal pain.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Primary Biliary Cirrhosis

    Liver biopsy showed lymphocytic and plasmacytic infiltration in the portal and periportal areas, with numerous areas of bridging centrilobular necrosis, indicating AIH.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hepatic fibrosis was not evident, in spite of the transudative ascites and active esophageal varices.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At 45 years of age, the patient complained of bloody diarrhea and abdominal pain, and she was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis by colonoscopy and histological examination[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
