Figure 1 Liver histology ranging from normal liver to steatohepatitis with fibrosis. A: Normal liver. Cytoplasmic fat globules are absent in hepatocytes and there is no fibrosis in this trichrome stained specimen (× 20); B: Steatosis without steatohepatitis. Moderate cytoplasmic fat infiltration (arrow) is present without fibrosis (× 20); C: Steatohepatitis with minimal fibrosis. There is focal hepatocyte ballooning, inflammation, and minimal fibrosis (accentuated in blue by trichrome stain); D: Steatohepatitis with fibrosis. There is nodular scarring in this fat laden liver with advanced fibrosis depicted in blue by trichrome stain (× 20).
