Table 1 Criteria for the acute injured liver pathological score
ScoreCellular necrosis and liver hyperplasiaInflammatory cell infiltration in the area of the header and lobuleInjury of vascular endothelium and thrombus
1Spotty liver cell degeneration, necrosis without change of hepatic sinusoid and lobule shapeInfiltration area < 1/3 lobule or low inflammatory cell infiltration in the area of the headerHyperemia of hepatic sinusoid or thrombus
2Scattering severe liver cell degeneration, necrosis of whole lobule or unobvious liver cell hyperplasiaInfiltration area: 1/3-2/3 of lobule or comparatively wide-bound inflammatory cell infiltrationInjury of vascular endothelium or inflammatory cell infiltration under vascular endothelium
3Large sheet liver cell degeneration and necrosis involving multiple lobulesInfiltration area: > 2/3 of lobule or inflammatory cells surround headerExtensive injury of vascular endothelium and thrombus
