Proliferation of cyst-lining epithelial cells is an integral part of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) cyst growth. Cytokines and growth factors within cyst fluids are positioned to induce cyst growth. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a pleiotropic growth factor present in ADPKD liver cyst fluids (human 1,128 +/- ...

Detection and characterization of liver lesions often present a diagnostic challenge to the radiologists. Liver lesions may be classified as hypovascular and hypervascular based on degree of hepatic arterial blood supply. Common hypervascular liver lesions include hemangioma, focal nodular hyperplasia, hepatocellular adenoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, fibrolamellar carcinoma, and metastases from primary ...

Poisoning with amanitin-containing hepatotoxic mushrooms demands extensive efforts from clinicians, toxicologists, and pathologists. Presumptive diagnoses are established by positive identification of the suspect mushroom along with the occurrence of consistent clinical signs. If the animal dies, hepatic lesions may suggest exposure to amanitin-containing mushrooms; however, lesions are nonspecific. A 15-week-old ...

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is an intermediate grade malignant neoplasm of vascular origin. The tumor involves the liver and lungs, but other organs are affected too. The key to the diagnosis is identification of cells of endothelial origin containing Factor VIII R antigen. Surgical resection of isolated lesions is the treatment of ...

Hepatocellular carcinoma is a common malignancy. It may cause extrahepatic metastases through haematogenous or lymphatic dissemination or direct invasion. Furthermore, methods such as fine-needle aspiration biopsies performed to obtain a diagnosis or percutaneous ethanol injection and radiofrequency hyperthermia performed for treatment may also cause tumour dissemination. We present a 52-year-old ...

Inflammatory pseudotumour is a rare form of a liver mass. We report the case of a 28-year-old man presenting with obstructive jaundice, in whom an inflammatory pseudotumour arose with the resolution of a mucus secreting cystic liver lesion. The initial features suggested an intrahepatic cystadenoma or cystadenocarcinoma, which on its ...

A 5-year-old, neutered male, Shar Pei dog was presented with weight loss, anorexia, lethargy, stranguria, and distal limb edema. Clinicopathologic abnormalities included anemia, an inflammatory leukogram, azotemia, icterus, urinary tract infection, and hepatomegaly with a markedly hypoechoic liver. Cytologic findings in a fine-needle aspirate of the liver included large amounts ...

BACKGROUND: Skin metastases from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) represented only 0.8% of all known cutaneous metastases in a recent large series. The most frequent site appears to be the head, but this fact has received little attention. An accurate cytologic diagnosis is extremely difficult in patients with unknown liver dysfunction. We ...

Percutaneous radiofrequency thermal ablation (RFA) is an effective and safe therapeutic modality in the management of liver malignancies, performed with ultrasound guidance. Potential complications of RFA include liver abscess, ascites, pleural effusion, skin burn, hypoxemia, pneumothorax, subcapsular hematoma, hemoperitoneum, liver failure, tumour seeding, biliary lesions. Here we describe for the ...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) represents one of the most common forms of liver disease and is considered the hepatic manifestation of the metabolic syndrome. Within the NAFLD spectrum, simple steatosis is considered benign, whereas non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) may progress to cirrhosis. The distinction can be made only by liver ...

Liver tissue ectopia is a well-documented phenomenon. Rarely, hepatocellular carcinoma arises from the ectopic liver tissue. In this paper, we report a case of a primary, well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma arising from ectopic liver tissue in the pancreas. The patient is a 58-year-old Hispanic man with no history of underlying liver ...

Primary neoplasms of the liver are composed of cells that resemble the normal constituent cells of the liver. Hepatocellular carcinoma, in which the tumor cells resemble hepatocytes, is the most frequent primary liver tumor, and is highly associated with chronic viral hepatitis and cirrhosis of any cause. Benign tumors, such ...

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is a rare benign entity formerly known as inflammatory pseudotumor. Involvement of the liver is extremely rare. There are controversies about the optimal treatment of this benign entity. Newer reports suggest an association with autoimmune sclerosing pancreatitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis. We present a case of an ...

The finding of a focal solid liver lesion represents a challenge for the clinician in terms of the most optimal diagnostic and therapeutic algorithm. Tumours may arise from hepatocytes (hepatocellular adenoma, dysplastic nodules and carcinoma), bile ducts (cholangiocarcinoma) or mesenchymal tissue (hemangioma, epithelioid haemangioendothelioma), or are metastases from primary tumours ...

A four-year-old girl was brought to the dermatology outpatient department with scaling all over the body since birth. She had history of episodic vomiting and abdominal distension. A dermatological diagnosis of lamellar ichthyosis was made. Abdominal examination revealed a nontender hepatomegaly, fatty liver on ultrasonography and deranged liver function tests. ...

Liver masses are very common and most are benign. It is therefore important to avoid unnecessary interventions for benign lesions, while at the same time ensuring accurate diagnosis of hepatic malignancies. Many cancer patients, like the general population, have incidental benign liver lesions. In planning treatment for cancer patients, it ...

Immunohistochemical staining with alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase AMACR (P504S) has been described in a number of normal tissues and was found to be useful for detecting malignancies including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Our aim was to determine whether AMACR is differentially expressed in benign nondysplastic liver tissue, hepatocellular dysplasia, and HCC. The study ...

A 58-year-old Japanese male visited us with painful lesions on the lower lip, oral mucosa and genital region of an 8-month duration. Histological features of the genital lesion were almost consistent with lichenoid tissue reaction. A few intraepidermal acantholytic keratinocytes were also seen in the suprabasal clefts. Direct immunofluorescence exhibited ...

Liver penetration is a rare complication of peptic ulcer disease. Histopathological examination of endoscopic biopsy is essential for diagnosis as well as sonographic and computerized tomography imaging. Endoscopic examination could not exclude tumor without pathologic examination. Herein, we report a patient diagnosed as duodenal ulcer penetration into liver by endoscopic ...

Derived from bile duct epithelia (BDE), secretion by liver cyst-lining epithelia is positioned to drive cyst expansion but the responsible ion flux pathways have not been characterized. Cyst-lining epithelia were isolated and cultured into high resistance monolayers to assess the ion secretory pathways. Electrophysiologic studies showed a marked rate of ...
Mgbor, Samuel O; ;
Cystic lesions of the liver are being increasingly diagnosed because of improved methods and wider availability of liver imaging techniques. There is considerable confusion in the classification and management of such cysts. This study is an attempt to characterise liver cysts seen at hepatic ultrasonography. A retrospective analysis of all ...

Diagnostic liver histopathology is currently based on the microscopic assessment of morphological and immunohistochemical features in a biopsy. In other fields of diagnostic pathology, it has been shown that the diagnostic process can be improved by the incorporation of ancillary molecular techniques and this will most likely also occur in ...
