Scholtze, Dieter; Reineke, Tanja; Müllhaupt, Beat; Gubler, Christoph (2010). Multiple infarcted regenerative nodules in liver cirrhosis after decompensation of cirrhosis: a case series. Journal of Medical Case Reports, 4:375.

Published Version


These patients showed focal liver lesions, to be considered in the differential diagnosis of cirrhotic livers. Infarcted regenerative nodules may be underdiagnosed in patients with decompensation of cirrhosis. In order to differentiate these lesions from malignant tumors, serial imaging seems to be helpful. However, the main differential diagnosis should be an abscess. It is important to know the wide spectrum of image appearances of these lesions. Hypotension can lead to a reduction of portal and arterial liver flow. Since variceal bleeding or septic shock can induce hypotension - as observed in our patients - we conclude that this leads to infarction of such nodules.
