Hepatic Pathology

Overview
  • Here we discuss parenchymal diseases of the liver related to derangements or dysfunction of hepatocytes. Whatever the primary etiology and initial pathogenesis, many hepatobiliary diseases ultimately lead to a fairly limited set of clinical endpoints. We first discuss the features of these clinical endpoints and then delve into the etiopathogenesis of specific disease entities. It should be pointed out that given the intimate anatomic, histological, and physiological interrelations between the hepatic and biliary systems derangements in one often lead to pathology in another.
