Acute Rejection Grading

Figure 2. This is an example of mild bile duct inflammation and damage. Note the presence of lymphocytes inside the basement membrane of the bile duct and the reactive changes in the biliary epithelium. In the Banff schema , this lesion would receive a score of "1" for bile duct damage if similar changes were present in more than an occasional, but not a majority of bile ducts.

Please mail comments, corrections or suggestions to the TPIS administration at the UPMC.
