In hematoxylin and eosin (H and E) stained sections from liver biopsies, the destruction of bile ducts in the portal triads is regarded as an important histologic parameter in the diagnosis of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). In contrast, the bile ducts are not destroyed by chronic inflammation in chronic active hepatitis (CAH). Nevertheless, the differential histologic diagnosis between PBC and virus or autoinmune-induced chronic active hepatitis (CAH), is very difficult in 15% of cases. That difficulty is mainly due to the impossibility of identifying bile ducts in the portal triads with marked lymphocytic infiltration...

Medical literature about chronic hepatitis is reviewed. This unresolving disease caused by viruses, drugs or unknown factors may progress to in cirrhosis and hepatocarcinoma. A classification based on liver biopsy histology into chronic persistent and chronic active types has been largely abandoned and emphasis is placed on recognizing the etiology of the various types. One is associated with continuing hepatitis B virus infection; another is related to chronic hepatitis C virus infection and the third is termed autoinmune, because of the association with positive serum autoantibodies...
