LIVER - Cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma

The liver is not enlarged; it shows a coarsely nodular cirrhosis with multiple tumour nodules measuring up to some 10.0 cm. across.
This woman presented at the age of 65 with dysproteinaemia. A liver biopsy showed chronic active hepatitis with an early cirrhosis. Seven years later she was admitted with haematemesis from bleeding oesophagael varices. Four years later she was found unconscious, at home, and died shortly afterwards.
