massive hepatic necrosis

Wednesday 8 December 2004

Massive and submassive hepatic necrosis are the histopathological counterpart of fulminant hepatic failure.

Etiology

- infections

  • acute viral hepatitis (60 to 75%)

- intoxications (drugs and toxins) (20%)

  • drug-induced hepatic necrosis
  • toxin-induced hepatic necrosis

- severe hepatic ischemia
- hepatic metabolic diseases

  • Wilson disease
  • hereditary tyrosinemia
  • galactosemia
  • hereditary fructose intolerance

- congenital hemochromatosis
- acute auto-immune hepatitis
