Fatty Liver in Total Parenteral Nutrition

slide 26 of 32

Comments:
Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) may induce hepatocellular injury resulting in macrovesicular steatosis, in which the hepatocyte nuclei are displaced by one or more fat vacuoles, or microvesicular steatosis, in which fat droplets are finely distributed in the hepatocyte cytoplasm. Steatohepatitis (as seen here) consists of steatosis with admixed inflammatory cells. There is also focal inspissated bile as result of cholestasis.
