[Acute cardiac liver. Diagnostic problems in 4 cases (author's transl)].


Four personal cases with histological examination of the liver and a review of 70 cases collected from the literature have enabled the authors to develop the diagnostic problems involved in acute cardiac liver. An accurate diagnosis of this condition, which consists of acute hepatic cytolysis on a background of heart failure, can only be based on its course and/or on the presence of histological changes in the liver.
