Liver lobe torsion in three adult rabbits


Wenger, S; Barrett, E L; Pearson, G R; Sayers, I; Blakey, C; Redrobe, S (2009). Liver lobe torsion in three adult rabbits. Journal of Small Animal Practice, 50(6):301-305.

Abstract

This paper describes three cases of liver lobe torsion in rabbits presenting with anorexia, lethargy, jaundice and abdominal pain. This condition was associated with anaemia and elevation of alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase and gamma-glutamyl transferase. Abnormal radiological findings included hepatomegaly, gas-filled intestinal loops consistent with gastro-intestinal ileus, and ascites. Ultrasonographic findings included heterogeneous liver parenchyma, free abdominal fluid and reduced bowel motility. Diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination of the liver in all three cases.
