Fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis is a name that has been given to a unique
presentation of viral hepatitis type B, which occurs in some allograft
recipients. Other names that have been used include, steatoviral, fibroviral,
steatofibroviral and fibrosing cytolytic hepatitis. All of these terms
refer to the degenerative changes, portal fibrosis and ductular proliferation
that is seen in association with overproduction of the B virus in liver
allografts. In this example, note the marked centrilobular hepatocyte swelling
and central-to-central and portal-to-central bridging collapse.
