There is no healthy liver present; the whole liver is cirrhotic, as evidenced by the presence of pseudolobules everywhere. There are some larger yellowish nodules that are necrotic and haemorrhagic. These are nodules of hepatocellular carcinoma.
A vein is visible too, into which a nodule of HCC has invaded into.
Diagnosis: Hepatocellular carcinoma and cirrhosis
- Alcoholic/viral/metabolic hepatitis -> cirrhosis -> HCC
HCC frequently invades vessels.
