The main pathological changes in the liver

Morphological changes in the liver, with its various lesions are not specific to certain diseases nature. Some of these may be signs of serious pathological changes, and the expression of reactive and adaptive processes accompanied by intense functional activity of the liver (I. Century Davydov, 1958; C. S. Weill, 1961).
Despite nespecificescoe morphological changes, the total assessment (including and histochemical changes) in comparison with the results of clinical and laboratory research helps to penetrate deeper into the essence of the pathological process, and therefore contributes to the correct knowledge of the disease.
When the majority of acute and chronic liver disease in the pathological process in various combinations involved all the major structural units of the authority: parenchyma, tissue elements (as stroma and vessels), biliary tract.
The signs of the suffering of the liver parenchyma are a violation of liver records, the heterogeneity of structure of hepatocytes (the variability of their size, blurred cells, changes in the cytoplasm).
Pathological changes in hepatocytes usually have the character of protein or fat dystrophy. The greatest expression of dystrophic changes is the death of cells - necrosis.
