Abstract

Nodular regenerative hyperplasia (NRH) of the liver is an uncommon entity of unknown origin and pathogenesis. We report here a case of NRH of the liver which was associated with portal vein thrombosis and adrenal hyperplasia. A 48-year-old man who was admitted for further examination of portal hypertension and splenomegaly, died of acute myocardial infarction. Autopsy revealed an enlarged heart with occluded coronary arteries and fresh multiple necrosis in the myocardium. The spleen and the liver were enlarged. In the liver diffusely distributed nodules of regenerative hyperplasia were noted. Organized thrombi of the portal vein and adenomatous hyperplasia of the left adrenal gland were also noted. Antinuclear antibody was positive in the serum.
