8 Possible Causes for Liver Biopsy showing Nonspecific Portal Inflammation

  • Hepatitis C

    Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis C virus (HCV). Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus. Today, most people become infected with the Hepatitis C virus by sharing needles or other equipment to inject drugs. For some people, hepatitis C is a short-term illness but for 70%–85% of people who become[…][cdc.gov]

Affected individuals may have no symptoms or may experience signs and symptoms of liver disease[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection

    Liver biopsy performed at 7 months of age showed nonspecific chronic portal inflammation, consistent with CMV infection, but CMV immunostains were negative, and serum transaminases[nature.com]

  • Klatskin Tumor

    Subsequent liver biopsy found mild nonspecific portal inflammation and no evidence of granulomatous disease; stain for IgG4 was negative.[acgcasereports.gi.org] Biopsy showing extensive granulomatous (large arrows) inflammation in the wall of the bile duct (small arrows). Scale bar, 1 μm.[acgcasereports.gi.org]

  • Diaphragmatic Eventration

    Liver biopsy performed at 7 months of age showed nonspecific chronic portal inflammation, consistent with CMV infection, but CMV immunostains were negative, and serum transaminases[nature.com]

  • Short Stature - Optic Atrophy - Pelger-Huët Anomaly Syndrome

    As there was no definitive infectious or metabolic cause of hepatitis, percutaneous liver biopsy was undertaken, which showed nonspecific acute hepatocellular injury.[saudijgastro.com] There was mild acute hepatitis with small foci of lobular necrosis and chronic inflammation. No portal fibrosis or bile duct damage was identified.[saudijgastro.com]

  • Hepatic Sarcoidosis

    Subsequent liver biopsy found mild nonspecific portal inflammation and no evidence of granulomatous disease; stain for IgG4 was negative.[acgcasereports.gi.org] Biopsy showing extensive granulomatous (large arrows) inflammation in the wall of the bile duct (small arrows).
