OBJECTIVE: Refractory ascites is defined as a lack of response to high doses of diuretics or the development of diuretic related side effects, which compel the patient to discontinue the diuretic treatment. Current therapeutic strategies include repeated large-volume paracentesis and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS). Peritoneovenous shunt (Denver shunt) should be considered for patients with refractory ascites who are not candidates for paracentesis or TIPS. This study presents our case series in the implant of Denver peritoneovenous shunt...

Arterial dissection is a rare complication after liver transplantation (LT). We report a case of extensive isolated spontaneous celiac trunk dissection (ISCTD) up to the proper hepatic artery, left gastric artery, and splenic artery after living donor liver transplantation. A 48-year-old woman with cryptogenic liver cirrhosis underwent living donor liver transplantation. Intraoperative and postoperative Doppler ultrasound revealed sufficient flow in the hepatic artery, portal vein, and hepatic vein. On postoperative day (POD) 10, Doppler ultrasound showed reduction of hepatic arterial flow...

BACKGROUND: Liver transplant (LT) patients with significant coronary artery disease (CAD) have poorer outcomes. Pre-LT coronary angiography (CA) is associated with significant complications in cirrhotic patients. METHODS: This study aimed to identify predictors of abnormal CA in pre-LT cardiac assessment and to develop a predictive model to reduce unnecessary CA. From January 2006 to June 2013, 122 patients underwent CA based on the current institutional protocol...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common chronic hepatic disease throughout the Western world and is recognized as the main cause of cryptogenic cirrhosis; however, the identification of an effective therapy for NAFLD is still a major challenge. Vitamin D deficiency is a wide-spread condition which reaches epidemic proportions in industrialized countries, mainly in relation to current lifestyle and limited dietary sources. Epidemiological studies point towards an association between hypovitaminosis D and the presence of NAFLD and steatohepatitis (NASH), independently of confounders such as obesity and insulin resistance...

Chronic Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare cause of liver cirrhosis (LC) and tends to be misdiagnosed in clinical practice. In order to characterize LC caused by chronic BCS, we conducted this retrospective observational study. Medical records of all patients who were initially diagnosed as chronic BCS with LC when discharged from our department from January, 2011 to October, 2016 were reviewed. Cirrhotic patients with known causes and cases lacked key data were excluded. Data of remaining patients was collected and analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Although hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) usually develops in cirrhotic livers, a minority of cases occur in noncirrhotic livers (NCLs). We investigated etiology, clinicopathological features, and occult hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection (OBI) in patients with NCL HCC in an HBV-endemic area. METHODS: A total of 710 patients who underwent resection or transplantation for HCC at the National Cancer Center (NCC), Korea, were enrolled. HCC and fibrosis stage were diagnosed pathologically...

BACKGROUND: As acute viral hepatitis can be fatal in patients with cirrhosis, vaccination against hepatitis A (HAV) and hepatitis B (HBV) is recommended for non-immune patients. With increasing affluence the incidence of hepatitis A in childhood has decreased leading to a significant proportion of non-immune adults. As part of their routine investigation, hepatitis A IgG antibodies (anti-HAV IgG), hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and anti-HCV antibodies was checked and immunization status was assessed among consenting newly diagnosed cirrhotic patients presenting to a tertiary referral center...

BACKGROUND: Hepatitis B virus (HBV) occult infection (OBI) is a risk factor to be taken into account in transfusion, hemodialysis and organ transplantation. The aim of this study was to identify and characterize at the molecular level OBI cases in patients with end-stage liver disease. METHODS: Sixty-six liver samples were obtained from patients with diagnosis of end-stage liver disease submitted to liver transplantation in Medellin (North West, Colombia). Samples obtained from patients who were negative for the surface antigen of HBV (n = 50) were tested for viral DNA detection by nested PCR for ORFs S, C, and X and confirmed by Southern-Blot...

Liver biopsies obtained for abnormal liver enzymes or unexplained ascites occasionally appear histologically almost normal. The differential diagnosis for these cases is challenging because literature addressing this topic is lacking. We aimed to establish a differential diagnosis and determine clinical associations and outcomes for almost-normal liver biopsies. Ninety-seven histologically almost-normal liver biopsies were collected from 2 institutions. All cases lacked significant inflammation, fatty change, biliary tract disease, vascular disease, nodular regenerative hyperplasia, iron overload, inherited metabolic or storage disorder, viral hepatitis, or fibrosis...

We read with great interest the paper by Combalia et al recently appeared on Journal of European Academy of Dermatology(1) . The authors reported two cases of yellow urticaria related to liver cirrhosis, one due to hemochromatosis, and the other one to alcohol(1) . With a total of ten cases reported in literature by now, we considered relevant to report another case we recently came across. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

REVIEW

OBJECTIVES: Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is characterised by recurrent attacks of fever and serositis. It may affect the peritoneum, pleura, synovia and the skin. Usually the liver is intact in FMF. Recently, this concept was challenged by some groups which claimed that hepatitis is a feature of FMF and that non-alcoholic liver disease (NAFLD) and cryptogenic cirrhosis are more common among FMF patients. Scope of this paper is to critically review the relevant literature and to answer the question whether or not the liver is involved in FMF...

Lysosomal acid lipase deficiency (LAL-D) is still a little recognized genetic disease with significant morbidity and mortality in children and adults. This document provides guidance on when to suspect LAL-D and how to diagnose it. It is recommended to add lysosomal acid lipase deficiency to the List of differential diagnoses of sepsis, oncological diseases, storage diseases, persistent diarrhea, chronic malnutrition, and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. It should also be considered in young patients with dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis as well as diseases associated with fatty liver and/or hepatomegaly...

The liver in Wilson disease may demonstrate a wide range of damage patterns. Some patients may present almost no detectable microscopic pathology, while others display lesions consistent with fulminant hepatitis or acute liver failure. Most liver biopsy specimens show moderate to severe steatosis, variable degree of portal and/or lobular inflammation, and fibrosis eventually progressing to cirrhosis. Additional findings include liver cell degeneration and ballooning, Mallory hyaline bodies, liver cell necrosis, and glycogenation of periportal hepatocytic nuclei...

Angiosarcoma is a rare type of soft tissue sarcoma that accounts for less than 1% of all sarcomas and only 2% of all primary hepatic tumours. Thorotrast, arsenic, and vinyl chloride monomer are frequently listed as occupational exposure risks. The estimated latency is long (10-40 years) in occupational cases and very long (60 years or more) in non-occupational cases. The symptoms and CT-scan appearance of hepatic angiosarcoma (HAS) are non-specific. We present a case of a 65-year-old Caucasian male with history of cryptogenic cirrhosis, low alpha-foetoprotein levels and a single, 4-cm nodule of potential atypical hepatocellular carcinoma (no washout at MRI and CT-scan) in segment VIII...
