Liver Parenchymal Disease
Depends on the cause: The term means a disease process affecting the entire liver. The ability to heal liver disease depends on the specific cause in a given patient and the degree of damage that's occurred to the organ. If the condition is early and hasn't progressed to an advanced stage of cirrhosis (scaring and destruction of liver tissue) it may be partly reversible. There are MANY causes of liver disease. ...Read more
This organ plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, including glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more
Liver Ultrasound: Hi, if I want to have a wild guess with this little info has been provided I would say you possibly have Fatty Liver, lose weight, eat right, exercise more, take fish oil and that should help the liver. For further information regarding that Parenchymal dx you better talk to the ordering physician as there are lots of various diseases that could involve the liver. ...Read more

How to cure liver parenchymal disease. Female, 74 yrs, anemic (Hb-6), non-diabetic, under-weight, choleostatis (6/12mm), ALT 290, other LFT normal?
This sounds serious: To translate, you have liver cell damage and scarring (cirrhosis), which caused abnormally elevated portal vein pressures which caused venous distention in esophagus (varices). You also developed fluid in abdominal cavity, because of the high portal vein pressure. This imaging study is showing advanced stage of liver disease. You must get a specialist to treat you. ...Read more
Mild ascitis, mild hepatomegaly with slightly coarse echotexture to r/o liver parenchymal disease, mild spleenomegaly and electrolyte imbalance?
Cirrhosis: The presentation is consistent with liver cirrhosis. What caused that - not clear from the presentation. Discuss it with your doc. ...Read more
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
Disease of the liver: It is disease involving the liver cells. It is not different than just saying "liver disease.". ...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?
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
Ducts versus tissue: The biliary tree is a network of pipes running through the liver tissue. Liver disease can often be divided into those affecting the pipes versus those affecting the tissue (which is made up of liver cells). Diseases which primarily affect the liver cells (and not the pipes) are considered parenchymal. ...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
Pls interpret. Liver ultrasound: normal size with probable diffuse parenchymal disease. This is after 8 cycles chemo, 1.5mos RAD for breast ca?
Nonspecific: This doesn't say much othe than the liver has some changes in its appearance that are uniform throughout the liver, not a single area which could represent a tumor. Best to ask the doctor that ordered the test to find out for sure. Hope this helps! ...Read more
What do you mean by " the liver is normal in size and configuration. It exhibits coarsened parenchymal echopattern and smooth external outline."?
Normal but bumpy.: This is from an ultrasound exam of your liver. The outline of your liver is smooth, and its size and shape are normal. But the texture of your liver is coarse, or bumpy. This can mean some scarring of the liver, cirrhosis from alcohol, chronic hepatitis, or just a "fatty" liver. There are other rare causes. It helps to know the whole story. Why you had the test in the first place! Ask your doc. ...Read more

No significance: The study is normal so not anything to worry about. ...Read more
What is the tretment pf liver parenchymal echogenecity with gall stones? What are the side affects of cholecystectomy?
3 questions here: Echogenicity likely from fat deposition-commonly associated with obesity, diabetes, some meds., alcohol. Rx: lose weight, keep diabetes under control, limit alcohol. Gallstones: no symptoms, no rx. Symptoms: pain, vomiting related to the stones-rx: surgery. Usually belly button (laparoscopic), may have diarrhea for some time after procedure. Always potential for surgical complications. ...Read more
Liver is mildly enlarged in size and parenchymal echogenecity is increased. A cyst approx size 45.3 x 40.6mm noted in right lobe of liver.
Please Clarify: Unfortunately you failed to ask a question. This would appear to be a report of an ultrasound. The best next step is to have it interpreted by your physician that ordered the test. ...Read more
Hi. What do you mean by an ultrasound result stating that the liver exhibits coarsened parenchymal echopattern and a smooth external outline? Thank you
Benign liver disease: This description of echotexture describes the relative level of echogenicity (ability to bounce an echo wave) of the liver. Assessment of liver echogenicity is of value for assessing moderate to pronounced fatty infiltration but is not reliable for diagnosing fibrosis. Smooth external outline means there is not cirrhosis. See your MD for additional testing and treatment for fatty liver ...Read more
Liver is mildly enlarged n parenchymal echogenecity is increased. A cyst approx size 45.3 x 40.6mm noted in right lobe of liver. Should I be worried?
Please Contact Doc: Given that we do not have any history from you, the medications you are on, the five liver function blood tests or any other sense of the context to your reason for testing there is nothing here we can comment on. I would ask you to rely upon the doctor who ordered the test to interpret the results and to put this all in perspective for you. ...Read more
Is liver showing diffuse increased parenchymal echogenicity with 2 small calcific foci in right lobe measuring about 2.5mm each is something to worry?
Concern: This question is best answered by a gastroenterologist or hepatologist (liver specialist). I would be concerned about chronic liver inflammation or fatty infiltration. I assume that you have been instructed to abstain from alcohol. A liver biopsy may be indicated for diagnosis. ...Read more
After my USG it was found that my liver size is 15.7 Cms long axis at MCL. Parenchymal echogenecigy is increased and also deceted 5.3 mm echogenic foc?
Need further testing: The liver size is normal. Increased echotexture may be seen with a wide range of liver diseases. However, most commonly it is secondary to fatty infiltration. While often this is incidental and of no consequence, it may lead to diminished liver function. The echogenic foci may reflect the underlying liver disease, or an incidental calcium deposit due to a prior event such as infection, injury, etc ...Read more
My ultrasonography report say : diffusely increased parenchymal echogenicity of the liver of homogenous texture (bright liver) correlation liver functn?
Liver US result: This means that the ordering physician has to review the blood tests (liver enzyme tests) to interpret the meaning of the ultrasound findings. There is no single cause of increased echogenicity of the liver, so it's not safe for you to guess at a diagnosis online. ...Read more

Coarse echotexture of liver parenchymal. Portal vein/spleen/pencreas normal. No focal lesion seen. Pv10mm. Cbd 4.6mm. Kidnys normal. No postvoid residue?
Need more info: Coarse texture on ultrasound can be from several reasons, fibrosis or cirrhosis of the liver, or inflammation or infiltration of the liver, and in some patients may be age related. It would be useful to know if the liver function tests are normal, if there is a history of liver disease including hepatitis, alcohol use or fatty liver changes. The ultrasound otherwise is not concerning. ...Read more
Ultrasound revealed large hypoechoic area in liver anterior lobe no ascites detected. Increased parenchymal changes. Please suggest next steps?
The next step is to get together with your physician, who ordered the study, to discuss these findings.
This is a very non-specific finding that means that you have a mass which needs to be further looked at by either more detailed imaging (MRI or CT scan), or it needs a biopsy so the tissue can be looked at in more detail.
They can be benign, but also might be malignant. ...Read more
