Nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver, peliosis hepatis, and perisinusoidal fibrosis. Association with angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy and severe hypoxemia

Gastroenterology. 1990 Jul;99(1):268-73. doi: 10.1016/0016-5085(90)91258-8.


Three different liver lesions were found in a 20-year-old woman with angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy. The lesions included nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver, perisinusoidal fibrosis, and peliosis hepatis. It is suggested that the association of angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with this broad spectrum of liver lesions was not fortuitous.
