PMID:  85166     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Liver abnormalities were found in three patients with fetal alcohol syndrome. The histological appearance was different in each case. Thick, sclerotic central veins were seen in two of the three cases. One patient had features typical of congenital hepatic fibrosis and cystic disease of the kidneys. Findings in these patients indicate that some cases of congenital hepatic fibrosis might be caused by high maternal alcohol ingestion in pregnancy.
