Increased /coarse hepatic parenchymal echotexture (liver parenchymal disease ) with prominent portal vein and splenomegaly?  Wat it means

Severe damage: When damage to the liver occurs for a long time, meaning years, the liver becomes scarred and the veins that bring blood to the liver become distended because of resistance inside the liver. This increased pressure causes the spleen to take more blood and become enlarged. This is called cirrhosis of the liver and can be due to any number of things including alcohol and viral hepatitis. ...Read more

Hi. What do u mean by an
Ultrasound impression of diffuse liver parenchymal disease but the patient has no vices and no history hepatitis infection?

That is a: nonspecific description that could be due to a variety of metabolic, infectious/inflammatory, medication induced, or neoplastic processes. Most commonly this finding is due to benign fatty infiltration(which itself has numerous causes). The finding needs to be interpreted in conjunction with your entire clinical/lab evaluation to determine its significance, so you need to talk to your doc. ...Read more

My doctor told me I have chronic parenchymal liver disease. I don't have Hep A,B,C. I drink alcohol in moderation. Is this reversible?

My doctor told me I have chronic parenchymal liver  disease. I don't have Hep A,B,C. I drink alcohol in moderation. Is this reversible?

Liver disease: The answer you have been given so far is incomplete. The dr. is telling you that you have liver disease, but not what the cause of the liver disease is. Just because you do not have viral hepatitis does not mean that you do not have liver disease. I would stop drinking alcohol completely for now, until you have answers. You need further testing by a gastroenterologist to sort this out. Good luck. ...Read more

LIVER ENLARGED & ECHOGENIC CONSISTENT WITH NONSPECIFIC HEPATIC PARENCHYMAL DISEASE SUCH AS STEATOSIS. NO FOCAL MASS IS SEEN.Spleen size 16cm??

See doctor: The size of the spleen is of note. This enlarges for many reasons. The liver also enlarged is of concern as well. There should be a coordinated laboratory values to help make sense of imaging results. Not a good idea to speculate on cause without more data. Speak to your doctor for more data ...Read more
