Healing and repair 1

Created by Prof. Mike Dixon

Female age 43

Tissue: Liver

This woman presented with jaundice. She had a long history of alcohol abuse and was currently drinking 1-2 bottles of sherry per day. Biochemical tests indicated that she was in liver failure. She underwent liver biopsy. She then received supportive treatment but 6 months later died with severe jaundice and a bleeding disorder.

The cut surface of the liver shows a fine nodularity. The colour is abnormally yellow.
