Liver Anatomy & Histology

A collection of pictures to reacquaint yourself with "normal" before we delve into the pathology....

Normal liver histology:

  • Sheets of hepatocytes interrupted at intervals by portal tract branches and hepatic venous tributaries of various sizes.

  • Fibrous tissue is scarce and limited to the portal tracts and central veins, the amount varying with the size of these structures.

Preservation of normal architecture is indicated by the presence of portal tracts and central veins occurring at uniform intervals.
