    The authors reflect on whether liver biopsy should be utilized to diagnose pediatric patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or should a diagnosis be carried out clinically through laboratories and imaging.

    Background: Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is a common cause of chronic liver disease. It is important to have a uniform and validated method for scoring liver histology in these patients. Therefore, we propose a modification of the Brunt system by scoring the four histologic features separately...

    We report 2 cases of ground-glass hepatocyte inclusions occurring in pediatric patients. Case 1 had alpha-thalassaemia major and was receiving iron chelation therapy, whereas case 2 had trisomy 21 with a history of bone marrow transplantation for acute myeloid leukemia. The liver sections in...

    The diagnostic procedures in patients with suspected fatty liver disease-with or without known alcohol consumption-should be standardized and generally accepted. We therefore present a guideline, summarizing the current concepts of etiology, diagnostic as well as differential diagnostic of...

    Purpose: Very interesting reports have appeared lately on the role of liver progenitor/oval cells in the morphogenesis and development of nonalcoholic steatohepatits (NASH) in adult patients and experimental animals. However, no literature data concerning pediatric patients have been available....

    Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis are common in patients undergoing bariatric surgery. Non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis can progress to cirrhosis of the liver and hepatocellular carcinoma. Non-invasive methods of diagnosing non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis are not...

    Hepatocyte apoptosis and energy metabolism in mitochondria have an important role in the mechanism of acute liver failure (ALF). However, data on the association between apoptosis and the energy metabolism of hepatocytes are lacking. The current study assessed the activity of several key enzymes...

    OBJECTIVES:Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is the most aggressive form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Noninvasive methods to identify children with NASH are urgently needed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of plasma cytokeratin-18 (CK18) fragment levels, a marker...

    Keratins, a major component of epithelial cell intermediate filaments, provide structural support to the cell and are important for the maintenance of structural integrity. Beyond its role of structural integrity in hepatocytes, keratin 18 (K18) is a known marker of apoptosis and has been...
