BACKGROUND: in adults, the absence of a preexisting chronic liver disease (CLD) is required to diagnose acute liver failure (ALF). The paediatric classification does not considered this aspect, thus previous studies pooled together children with ALF and children with unknown CLD presenting with acute hepatic decompensation (ALF-CLD). We aimed to compare prevalence, features and outcome of children with ALF-CLD to those with a proper ALF. METHODS: Patients admitted between 1996-2017 because of ALF defined by PALF criteria (raised transaminases, INR ≥2...

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS), also known as hepatic venous outflow tract obstruction includes a group of conditions characterized by obstruction to the outflow of blood from the liver secondary to involvement of one or more hepatic veins (HVs), inferior vena cava (IVC) or the right atrium. There are a number of conditions that lead to BCS-ranging from hypercoagulable states to malignancies. In up to 25% patients, no underlying disorder is identified. Diagnosis of BCS is based on a combination of clinical and imaging features...

Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) leads to the development of liver fibrosis in most of the cases. However, the mechanism of BCS-related liver fibrosis is unclear, and it may be largely different from that induced by chronic viral hepatitis. Hepatic stellate cell (HSC) and its specific marker CD248/endosialin are known to play an important regulatory role in the development of liver fibrosis. Additionally, hypoxia microenvironment and hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) are involved in the regulation of CD248/endosialin...

There are limited data on clinical profile of adolescent patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS). We studied clinical, radiological, thrombophilia profile and treatment outcomes in adolescent patients with BCS. METHODS: Forty-three consecutive patients of BCS with onset of symptoms during adolescence (10-19 years) were enrolled in the study. 129 randomly selected adult patients with BCS and 36 children with BCS formed the two control groups. The clinical history, physical examination, laboratory tests, thrombophilic disorders, radiological features and treatment outcomes of adolescents were compared to adults and children...

BACKGROUND Acute-on-chronic liver failure was first defined within the last 10 years as acute decompensation of chronic liver disease accompanied by multiorgan failure and poor outcome. Budd-Chiari syndrome is a rare and potentially deadly hepatic condition. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of a live liver donor recipient with antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. CASE REPORT A 47-year-old woman from Sudan with acute-on-chronic liver failure and subacute Budd-Chiari syndrome triggered by active pneumonia was evacuated to Amman, Jordan...

Stroke and hepatic vein thrombosis are highly associated with neoplasia but are extremely rare events in young, pregnant women. Rare and recurrent thrombotic events in pregnancy increase the suspicion for occult malignancy. We describe the case of a healthy 31-year-old G2P1 who presented with visual changes and dysarthria during pregnancy. Imaging showed cerebral infarcts. Her thrombophilia evaluation was negative. During delivery, she was diagnosed with fulminant Budd-Chiari Syndrome. Hepatic ultrasound suggested malignancy or metastasis, and postpartum CT scan and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of Stage IV pancreatic cancer...

Hepatocellular nodules have been recognized in vascular liver diseases for a long time and mostly described and studied in the imaging literature. Some confusions in their identification and overlap in their definitions exist, especially in this specific clinical context. Pathology descriptions report the development of nodular regenerative hyperplasia, large regenerative nodule, and focal nodular hyperplasia, as adaptive responses of the liver parenchyma to the modified blood flow. True neoplastic hepatocellular nodules such as hepatocellular adenoma and hepatocellular carcinoma can also appear, mainly in Budd-Chiari syndrome, and have to be correctly diagnosed...
