4 Possible Causes for Liver Biopsy showing Abnormal Bile Duct Proliferation

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    To differentiate diffuse liver cancer from portal cirrhosis by using ultrasonography. We analyzed the sonographic images of 15 patients with diffuse liver cancer and 30 patients with portal cirrhosis. The patients with diffuse liver cancer showed enlarged liver and obvious echo of nodules. The rate of portal embolism[…][]

  • Primary Biliary Cirrhosis

    IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a chronic fibro-inflammatory disorder which is characterized by elevated levels of serum IgG4 and infiltration of IgG4-bearing plasma cells in the involved organs. Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) and Primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) are both distinct from IgG4-related disease. We[…][]

  • Alcoholic Hepatitis

    Alcoholic hepatitis (AH) is a severe manifestation of alcohol-related liver disease characterised by jaundice and liver failure. It is not known what might trigger an episode of AH. We interviewed patients to investigate changes in behaviour before the onset of AH. Structured interviews were performed with patients[…][]

  • Bile Acid Synthesis Defect with Cholestasis and Malabsorption

    The histology of a liver biopsy performed at the age of 3½ years showed cholestasis with expansion of portal tracts, some fibrosis, and bile duct proliferation.[] Her liver function tests remained persistently abnormal with increasing alkaline phosphatase.[]
