This session will review common and important medical, transplant, and neoplastic liver diseases, focusing mainly on histology but incorporating clinical, serologic, radiographic, and molecular correlations.
Recognize classical histopathology of major medical liver diseases, including steatohepatitis, primary biliary cholangitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, autoimmune hepatitis, viral hepatitis, haemochromatosis, and alpha-one-antitrypsin deficiency.
Describe typical clinical, serologic, therapeutic, and, where relevant radiographic, features of common medical liver diseases.
