16 Possible Causes for Diffuse Hepatic Steatosis, Esophageal Varices, Liver Biopsy

  • Macronodular Cirrhosis

    METHODS: Forty-two patients with at least one liver biopsy strongly suggestive of ISC were selected for the study covering a period between 1968 and 1987.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On CT, an objective measurement using Hounsfield units of 48 on a noncontrast study is most accurate in diagnosing hepatic steatosis.[jaocr.org] . • Two markers of portal hypertension, thrombocytopenia and splenomegaly, moderately increase the likelihood of large esophageal varices. • If advanced cirrhosis is present[encyclopedia.lubopitko-bg.com]

  • Liver Cirrhosis

    liver biopsy.[web.archive.org] First, perfusion, iron overload, hepatic steatosis, liver inflammation and edema can confound the interpretation of diffusion parameters. 54 Second, DWI is sensitive to motion-related[dx.doi.org] CONCLUSIONS: Sclerotherapy is an effective method in the management of esophageal variceal bleeding in hemophilia patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Indian Childhood Cirrhosis

    Microscopy showed panacinar hepatitis, portal and pericellular fibrosis, and diffuse Mallory bodies in the absence of steatosis or significant cholestasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Serial liver biopsy changes have been reviewed in 30 patients with Indian childhood cirrhosis (ICC) who were randomly allocated to receive treatment with penicillamine[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The disease rapidly evolves into cirrhosis with early portal hypertension and bleeding from esophageal varices.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Liver Disease

    Of these, 22 underwent liver biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cutoff values for grading steatosis varied across studies included in the meta-analysis but were not less than 25 % for moderate to severe hepatic steatosis.[link.springer.com] We describe a patient with Wilson's disease manifested by cirrhosis, portal hypertension, and bleeding esophageal varices who underwent termination of pregnancy at 9 weeks[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fatty Liver

    Preoperative donor liver biopsy specimens showed normal histological findings with no evidence of a fatty liver, but the postoperative liver biopsy in recipients specimens[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hepatic steatosis Wilson disease hepatic fatty infiltration diffuse hepatic steatosis focal hepatic steatosis Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org] If the process isn't interrupted, cirrhosis can lead to: Fluid buildup in the abdomen (ascites) Swelling of veins in your esophagus (esophageal varices), which can rupture[mayoclinic.org]

  • Focal Nodular Hyperplasia

    The role of liver biopsy in children for the diagnosis of FNH is unclear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mortele KJ, Stubbe J, Praet M et al (2000) Intratumoral steatosis in focal nodular hyperplasia coinciding with diffuse hepatic steatosis: CT and MRI findings with histologic[link.springer.com] In explanted livers of 130 cirrhotic patients, the presence of esophageal varices was significantly associated with the presence of FNH-like nodules, suggesting a contribution[karger.com]

  • Hepatitis

    liver biopsy.[gut.bmj.com] diffusely decreased parenchymal attenuation on noncontrast CT diffuse edematous change hepatic steatosis may be a cause (steatohepatitis) or a result of acute hepatitis possible[radiopaedia.org] varices Jaundice Ascites Utricarial rashes Portal Hypertension Hepatomegaly and Splenomegaly Signs of encephalopathy (i.e. seizure and delirium) Malnutrition The following[symptoma.com]

  • Chronic Hepatitis

    As noted in Question 3, when the role of liver biopsy was discussed, in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV), a liver biopsy is also only necessary in patients with[healio.com] “bright liver” and with deep attenuation; and (3) “severe steatosis”, presence of diffusely severe “bright liver” and deep attenuation without visibility of the diaphragm[doi.org] varices Serum enzyme levels usually fluctuate but may be elevated 2x to 10x Many patients with mild chronic hepatitis C have persistently normal serum aminotransferase levels[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Hepatic Infarction

    Hepatic steatosis was diagnosed based on characteristic ultrasonographic features, such as diffuse hyperechogenicity of the liver relative to the kidneys, ultrasound beam[journals.plos.org] We report on a case of HAP that potentially formed after a liver biopsy in a patient with sarcoidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 63-year-old woman with liver cirrhosis and esophageal varices was admitted for treatment of the esophageal varices.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatic Veno-Occlusive Disease

    The diagnosis of veno-occlusive disease was confirmed by histological examination of liver biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diffuse hypoattenuation of the liver is consistent with hepatic steatosis.[erj.ersjournals.com] Portal hypertension can result in dilated, twisted (varicose) veins in the esophagus ( esophageal varices ).[msdmanuals.com]
