*Alcoholic liver diseases

  1. Alcoholic liver cirrhosis

    Alcoholic liver cirrhosis in the early stage is characterized by an enlarged liver with a granular liver surface. In this picture, yellowish-colored small nodules are diffusely seen, since severe fatty changes are histologically proven in regenerative nodules. In a later stage, the liver is known to become atrophic to a postnecrotic cirrhosis.







  2. Lymphocysts associated with alcoholic liver cirrhosis

    Lymphocysts are small whitish-colored cysts scattered on the liver surface. This finding indicates the stasis of the lyomhatic flow in the liver. Lymphocysts are commonly recognized in cases with alcoholic liver injuries, especially with alcoholic liver cirrhosis.
