We describe a case of a young healthy patient who presents a lot of hepato-splenic lesions caused by a systemic cat scratch disease. This case allows us to discuss the uncommon manifestations of the cat scratch disease and to describe the two types of hepatic lesions caused by a systemic bartonella infection : the granulomatosis and peliosis.

Peliosis hepatis (PH) is a rare, benign condition of the liver characterized by the presence of blood-filled lacunar spaces in the parenchyma. It usually has a chronic presentation and is a rare cause of portal hypertension reported in adult patients. Its etiology is diverse and ranges from infectious agents to tumors to toxic substances and anabolic steroids; however, the cause remains unclear in 25-50% of patients. Similarly, the symptomatology and imaging findings are diverse. Biopsy is the definitive test to diagnose the condition...

Cat scratch disease is a relatively rare infection that is caused by the bacterium Bartonella henselae. This disease occurs after cat scratch or bite. The course of the disease depends on the patients immunity status. In immunocompetent patients, the disease typically runs as a lymph node syndrome. Sometimes, mild general symptoms may appear, or the course can be atypical with a more serious clinical manifestation involving various organs. In immunocompromised patients, Bartonella henselae can cause bacillary angiomatosis or peliosis with a severe course...

Selected biomarkers of health were examined in 50 post-spawning cod Gadus morhua collected in November 2015 from the southern Baltic. The biomarkers included condition factor (CF), macroscopic lesions, histopathology of spleen, liver and gonads, and morphometry of follicular atresia and hepatic and splenic melanomacrophage cells (MMC). All fish appeared in good body condition. One fish had a dermal ulcer, and in seven, macroscopic nematodes were noted within body cavity. Microscopic lesions in the liver included biliary myxozoanosis, microsporidial and necrocentric granulomas, parasitic hepatitis, multifocal necrosis, foci of cellular alterations, spongiosis, peliosis and cytoplasmic fibrillar inclusions...

The liver has a complex vascular supply, which involves the inflow of oxygenated blood through the hepatic artery (systemic circulation) and deoxygenated blood through the portal vein (portal circulation), as well as the outflow of deoxygenated blood through the hepatic veins to the inferior vena cava. A spectrum of vascular variants can involve the liver. Some of these variants may result in areas of enhancement that can mimic more serious pathologic conditions. In this article, the authors discuss a spectrum of variants and pathologic conditions that may involve the liver vasculature...

Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) abuse and misuse is nowadays a harmful habit involving both professional or recreational athletes, as well as general population. AAS are also frequently present in over-the-counter dietary supplements without being declared in the list of ingredients, leaving consumers unaware of the risks of adverse effects. Indeed, health risks of AAS consumption in pharmaceutical preparations or dietary complements seem still underestimated and under-reported. The variety of complications due to AAS misuse involves cardiovascular, central nervous, musculoskeletal and genitourinary systems of both males and females; psychiatric and behavioral effects, damages to metabolic system, skin and mainly liver...

RATIONALE: Peliosis hepatis (PH) is a rare tumor-like liver lesion composed of multiple blood-filled cavities within the liver parenchyma. It is hard to differentiate PH from other liver lesions by imaging, such as carcinoma, metastases, or abscess. PATIENT CONCERNS: Here, we reported 2 cases that presented with liver lesions under ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) scanning, without any history of liver diseases or drug usage traced back. DIAGNOSES: Liver biopsy and laparoscopy were processed, and the lesions were eventually diagnosed as PH by histopathology, which microscopically presented with multiple sinusoidal dilatations with blood-filled cystic spaces...

Peliosis hepatis is a rare benign disorder of the liver, histologically characterized by blood-filled cystic cavities of various sizes and irregular shapes, communicating with the hepatic sinusoids. Only a few cases of peliosis hepatis have been described using contrast enhanced ultrasound showing admittedly various dynamic enhancement patterns. We present a case of peliosis hepatis with a typical target-sign enhancement depicted by means of contrast enhanced ultrasound.

Splenic peliosis is an exceedingly rare complication following liver and kidney transplant, with few previously reported cases. A 24-year-old man with chronic renal and hepatic failure due to primary oxalosis underwent concomitant renal and hepatic transplant. On the eighth day of successful transplant, he showed signs and symptoms of hypovolemia with suspicion of intra-abdominal bleeding. Diagnostic laparotomy was performed, yielding splenic rupture, and a splenectomy was performed. Macroscopically, the spleen was ruptured, and the cut surface displayed multiple parenchymal blood-filled cysts...

BACKGROUND: Peliosis hepatis is an uncommon vascular condition characterized by multiple, randomly distributed, blood-filled, and cyst-like cavities throughout the liver. The unique clinical nature consisting of an asymptomatic, benign, and incidental finding sometimes conceals itself even until autopsy. However, the exact pathomechanism remains as yet unproven. METHOD: We encountered the patient with multiple hypervascular masses in the whole liver and investigated the clinicopathological features underlying this condition...

Peliosis hepatis (PH) is a condition involving benign tumors pathologically characterized by multiple blood-filled cavities, mostly affecting the liver and spleen. Androgenic-steroids are widely used in patients with bone marrow failure syndromes (e.g.: aplastic anemia) and these patients are at increased risk of developing PH. Although patients with PH are generally asymptomatic, PH can progress to liver failure and even fatal spontaneous intraabdominal hemorrhage. Therefore, early diagnosis is critical in order to prevent life-threatening complications of PH...

Clonorchis sinensis is a Group-I bio-carcinogen, associated with cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). The hamster is the only experimental model of C. sinensis-mediated CCA, but we oblige another animal model. The present study intended to develop a C. sinensis (Cs) mediated CCA model using C3H/He mice, co-stimulated with N-nitrosodimethyl-amine (NDMA) and dicyclanil (DC). The mice were divided into 8 groups with different combinations of Cs, NDMA, and DC. Six months later the mice were sacrificed and subjected to gross and histopathological examination...

In 1915, a British medical officer on the Western Front reported on a soldier with relapsing fever, headache, dizziness, lumbago, and shin pain. Within months, additional cases were described, mostly in frontline troops, and the new disease was called trench fever. More than 1 million troops were infected with trench fever during World War 1, with each affected soldier unfit for duty for more than 60 days. Diagnosis was challenging, because there were no pathognomonic signs and symptoms and the causative organism could not be cultured...

Anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) have been abused for decades by both professional and amateur athletes in order to improve physical performance or muscle mass. AAS abuse can cause adverse effects, among which are hepatotoxic effects. These effects include cholestatic icterus and possibly peliosis hepatis and hepatocellular carcinoma or adenoma. In particular, 17α-alkylated AAS appear to be hepatotoxic, whereas nonalkylated AAS appear not to be. The 17α-alkyl substitution retards hepatic metabolism of the AAS rendering it orally bioavailable...

Oxaliplatin is an effective chemotherapeutic agent for the treatment of colorectal cancer; however, it may cause liver injury, particularly sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS). Although SOS does not usually present with focal lesions on radiological images, the present study describes the case of a 22-year-old woman with oxaliplatin-induced SOS mimicking metastatic colon cancer in the liver. An abdominal computed tomography revealed a novel 1 cm, low-density lesion in segment 1 of the liver following the administration of the fourth round of oxaliplatin-based adjuvant chemotherapy for stage III colon cancer...

INTRODUCTION: Advances in neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NCT) have allowed surgical treatment in otherwise unresectable patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). It is well known that NCT induces liver lesions such as sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS) and steatohepatitis (SH). However, whether it affects postoperative morbidity remains controversial. The aim of this study was both to evaluate the impact of NCT on liver parenchyma and postoperative morbidity, and to identify preoperative predictive markers for liver injury...

Peliosis hepatis is a rare condition that can cause hepatic hemorrhage, rupture, and ultimately liver failure. Several authors have reported that peliosis hepatis develops in association with chronic wasting disease or prolonged use of anabolic steroids or oral contraceptives. In this report we describe a case in which discontinuation of steroid therapy improved the condition of a patient with peliosis hepatis. Our patient was a 64-year-old woman with a history of long-term steroid treatment for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura ...
