    Laboratory tests include a range of blood and urine tests. Blood work may include testing for genetics (inherited disorders) or to determine the amount of oxygen in the blood. Urine tests may be performed to check blood, chemicals, bacteria, and cells for infection or other abnormalities. Autoimmune liver disease Autoimmune Hepatitis •ANA or ASMA or both (+) in majority of cases-Rare Type II AIH with anti-LKM: more severe, young-IgG elevated but non-specific-Liver biopsy confirms diagnosis-Markers also (+) in other liver disease, often low titer Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC)- .

      Diagnosis of liver disease is based on initial history and physical examination. History of previous illness, drug or alcohol intake, family history of liver disease needs to be evaluated in detail. Liver disease: Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency also cause liver disease in some people with the condition, that include liver cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, an abnormally large liver (hepatomegaly), liver failure, and hepatitis. Liver damage from alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency causes symptom of a swollen abdomen, swollen legs or feet, and jaundice.

This book guides practitioners in the assessment of patients with a liver problem. The emphasis is on the role of macro- and microscopic pathology in elucidating pathogenesis as well as identifying confounding features of image findings that may lead to a more elaborate differential diagnosis.

Pathophysiology and Organ Systems, The investigation of liver disease constitutes a significant proportion of the workload of the clinical laboratory, spanning all disciplines.

This book covers all aspects of the investigation of liver disease from initial evaluation of the patient to those tests that define a specific diagnosis.

Pathology of Liver Diseases is a rapid reference consultation tool that uses both book and online material to present a whole range of liver disorders. The book emphasizes not only the pathology seen in biopsy and surgical material, but also the most pertinent clinical and laboratory findings including epidemiology, etiologic and pathophysiologic concepts, and the differential diagnoses.

Precise diagnosis of hepatic dysfunction requires additional workup, including serologic tests and imaging studies. For some causes of liver disease, such as drug-induced liver disease and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, specific testing is not available, and diagnosis is by exclusion of other etiologies.

An approach to medical liver disease diagnosis will be presented that utilizes pattern recognition in combination with interpretation of key laboratory data and elements of the available clinical history to arrive at a final diagnosis, or at least a limited differential that is of value to clinicians.

Elevated ALT is somewhat specific for liver injury. Because AST is present in the heart, skeletal muscle, kidneys, red blood cells, and pancreas, elevated AST may reflect rhabdomyolysis or injury to one of these organs. In most liver disorders, the ratio of AST to ALT is liver disease, the ratio is characteristically > 2 because pyridoxal-5'-phosphate is.

Preface. With all of the advancements in hepatology, including invasive and non-invasive imaging, laboratory tests targeting specific diseases, molecular biology, and genomics, one might think that liver biopsy material in patients with suspected acute or chronic liver diseases or hepatic tumors may not be as necessary in arriving at a specific diagnosis as it was in the past; however, what.
