Fibrosis begins both in portal tracts and in centrilobular regions and progresses through biliary-pattern cirrhosis to micronodular cirrhosis, with slight ductular reaction.
The liver showed established micronodular cirrhosis. The kidneys showed bilateral multiple abscesses.
On postmortem histology, the liver had bridging necrosis, lymphocytic infiltration, focal cholestasis, increased fibrosis, and micronodular cirrhosis. Results were negative for serum anti-A lgM, antibody to hepatitis B core antigen (anti-HBc), antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs), and antibody to hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV).
At laparotomy, the liver was found to be hard and sclerotic with mixed macronodular and micronodular cirrhosis. There was a small right lobe mostly occupied by a white, multinodular tumor, extending to segment IV and the left hepatic vein.
Transjugular liver biopsy revealed micronodular cirrhosis with periodic acid-Schiff (PAS)-positive acidophilic bodies in the cytoplasm of the hepatocytes.
