AbstractBackground: Liver biopsy is done for diagnosing liver diseases and is the gold standard for managing liver disorders, giving details of diagnosis, progression of disease and response to treatment.
Aim: To study liver biopsies and to correlate them with different age groups and to evaluate different hepatic lesions.
Results: A retrospective study of 60 liver biopsies was done during the period May 2021 to May 2022. Staining was done with H & E and the slides were examined using light microscope. Among these, 41 cases were males and 19 cases were females. Out of 60 cases, 14(23.3%) cases each were of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, 11(18.3%) cases were of chronic hepatitis, 6(10%) cases were of fatty liver, 3(5%) cases were of biliary atresia, 4(6.6%) cases were of liver abscess, 2(3.3%) cases were of glycogen storage disorder, 1 case each of degenerative liver disease, liver cell dysplasia and miliary tuberculosis. Liver biopsy was inadequate in 3(5%) cases.
Conclusion: Examination using microscopy done in liver biopsy presents a spectrum of pathological variations and helps to diagnose the diseases and guides the physicians for appropriate treatment.
