A 1-year-and-3-month-old, male standard poodle dog with intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (PSS) was autopsied. Nineteen regions of the liver were prepared for detailed examination, and the distribution of hepatic lesions caused by PSS was studied in the liver of this dog. Histopathologically, the liver revealed a variety of hepatic lesions including lipogranulomas in the hepatic parenchyma, and a ductular reaction and microvascular proliferation in portal areas. The distribution of the lesions was not significantly different among liver regions. It is concluded that, in the present case, hepatic lesions caused by PSS are independent of shunt location, and are distributed equally in the liver.
