Polysplenia, preduodenal portal vein, gut malrotation, congenital heart disease, and laterality and situs anomalies of internal organs). Abdominal ultrasound, hepatobiliary iminodiacetic acid (HIDA) scan, and cholangiogram are important radiologic diagnostic tools. 4 Fig. 28 Biliary atresia. This excised atretic porta hepatis contains multiple small duct remnants. The pathologic features of biliary atresia are influenced by the timing and location of specimens obtained. More than 90% of cases are the result of obliteration of the common hepatic duct at the porta hepatis.
A mitotic figure (centre) is present in a dividing hepatocyte in response to acute hepatitis. Replication of hepatocytes through mitotic division is a key part of regenerative responses in liver and is evident in mild to moderate cellular loss. Of course, mitotic activity also may be prominent in hepatocellular neoplasms. However, atypical mitotic figures are never encountered in regeneration. Fig. 59 Ploidy. Regenerating hepatocytes may show binucleation, vesicular chromatin, and prominent nucleoli.
There are many ballooned hepatocytes, which are characterized by cellular swelling, rarefaction of the cytoplasm, and clumped strands of intermediate filaments. The mimickers of ballooning degeneration are feathery degeneration, steatosis (particularly the microvesicular form), and glycogen-rich hepatocytes. Feathery degeneration is almost indistinguishable from ballooning degeneration, but one can differentiate between them by the presence of cholestasis and/or cholate stasis, frequently associated with feathery degeneration.
