  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem

OBJECTIVE: To describe and explain the syndrome of HIV-associated cryptogenic liver disease in eight consecutive patients suffering from portal hypertension.

METHODS: The study was undertaken at a liver disease centre in Paris and involved eight of 97 consecutive HIV-infected patients presenting abnormal liver function tests and/or symptomatic portal hypertension of unknown origin. Serology, pathology, and liver function tests were performed.

RESULTS: A clear nodular architecture corresponding to nodular regenerative hyperplasia was observed in seven patients and suggested in one, based on the presence of sinusoidal dilatation in a clinical context of portal hypertension, without overt liver disease.

CONCLUSIONS: Nodular regenerative hyperplasia appears to be a new cause of portal hypertension in HIV-infected patients. This syndrome can be of critical importance as patients can be exposed to the significant complications of portal hypertension and to refractory ascites which may require liver transplantation.
