2,140 Possible Causes for Acute Liver Failure, Liver Biopsy showing Periportal Necrosis, Painless Jaundice

  • Viral Hepatitis

    Parvovirus B19 may be the causative agent in some adult cases of acute non-A-E viral hepatitis and acute liver failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The clinical spectrum of acute hepatitis A is wide, ranging from mild case without any noticeable symptoms to severe case with acute liver failure leading to mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Occasionally, acute viral hepatitis progresses to acute liver failure (indicating fulminant hepatitis).[msdmanuals.com]

  • Hepatitis B

    liver failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The main indications for transplant owing to HBV are now acute liver failure (both acute and acute reactivation on the background of chronic HBV) and HCC.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Severe acute hepatitis B can be treated with an oral antiviral drug but available data on effectiveness are conflicting and those with acute liver failure are candidates for[hepfi.org]

  • Hepatitis A

    Hepatitis A related acute liver failure is rare, but is associated with a poor prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Therefore, he was diagnosed with severe acute liver failure with acute renal failure (ARF) caused by HAV infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Late-onset hepatic failure, the least of the fulminant hepatic failures, has not occurred in patients with hepatitis A virus-related acute liver failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] Wilson's disease (hereditary copper accumulation) may infrequently present with acute liver failure.[en.wikipedia.org] Some 6 months before the final admission, painless jaundice gradually developed.[nap.edu]

  • 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] Acute liver failure is a rare syndrome with high mortality and is often diagnosed late.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] According to this definition, patients with "acute-on-chronic" or "acute-on-cirrhosis" liver failure were excluded.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Toxic Hepatitis

    Here we report an additional case of toxic hepatitis associated with dronedarone presenting with acute liver failure, followed by spontaneous recovery, in a 69-year old woman[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Johnson, 62-Year-Old Man With Painless Jaundice and Hyponatremia, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, 10.1016/j.mayocp.2012.09.009, 88, 6, (e49-e53), (2013).[doi.org] Toxic hepatitis or drug-induced liver injury (DILI) encompasses a spectrum of conditions ranging from mild biochemical abnormalities to acute liver failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aflatoxicosis

    OBJECTIVES: During January-June 2004, an aflatoxicosis outbreak in eastern Kenya resulted in 317 cases and 125 deaths. We conducted a case-control study to identify risk factors for contamination of implicated maize and, for the first time, quantitated biomarkers associated with acute aflatoxicosis. DESIGN: We[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatitis E

    Acute Liver Failure Study Group were tested for anti-HEV immunoglobulin (Ig) M and anti-HEV IgG levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a rare case of acute liver failure from acute hepatitis E virus (HEV) in a non-pregnant woman without comorbidities who survived after liver transplantation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Nonetheless, development of acute liver failure in these patients is exceptional, with few cases published.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    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] […] disease 78 terms GI bleeding 46 terms Acute liver injury and acute liver failure 44 terms Non Colorectal GI cancers[quizlet.com] Exposure to anaesthetic gas called halothane may also lead to acute liver failure.[news-medical.net]
