Hi Dr,
I had liver biopsy and got result. I'm unable to understand the severity of the report.
"ground glass appearance of hepatocytes are seen. focal llytic necrosis with apoptosis and focal inflammation present(score-1).confluent necrosis is not seen(score-0).
periportal and interface hepatitis is seen(score-4).fatty changes of hepatocytes are seen.portal inflammation seen(score-3).portal to portal and portal to central fibrosis is noted(score-3).the sinusoids are mildly dilated.there are no granulomas. there is no malignancy.
impression:core biopsy from liver shows features of chronic hepatitis with total activity index of (08) and fibrosis score of(4)".

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
The report is suggestive of moderately active chronic hepatitis with liver cirrhosis.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
