Summary Children treated with large doses of corticosteroids were found to develop hepatomegaly within a few days. No relationship could be established between the condition for which steroids were given and the liver enlargement. Liver biopsy was thought to be indicated, and thus was performed in three children because of diagnostic uncertainty. The light and electron microscopic examinations revealed normal liver architecture, without edema, sinusoid engorgement, or inflammatory changes. The… Expand
Glucocorticoid-induced rapid development of glycogenic hepatopathy in a liver transplant patient with no prior history of diabetes mellitus : a case report
Glycogenic hepatopathy is a distinct clinicopathologic entity in which there is a pathologic overloading of hepatocytes with glycogen. Classically, it has been described in association with poorlyExpand
Glycogenic Hepatopathy: Thinking Outside the Box
A young adult female presented with bilateral upper quadrant abdominal pain, tender hepatomegaly, lactic acidosis and a >10-fold increase in liver enzymes, which worsened after the administration of high-dose steroids, supporting recent claims of the involvement of other identified factors in disease development. Expand
Glycogenic hepatopathy: A narrative review
Future studies are required to understand the biochemical defects underlying GH, noninvasive, rapid diagnostic tests for GH, and to assess the consequence of the fibrosis identified as severe fibrosis may progress to cirrhosis, which has been a recent report of varying degree of liver fibrosisidentified in patients with GH.

Glycogenic Hepatopathy: An Underrecognized Hepatic Complication of Diabetes Mellitus
G glycogenic hepatopathy can cause hepatomegaly and significant transaminase elevations in individuals with type I diabetes mellitus and the pathology is distinct from steatohepatitis. Expand
A case of glycogenic hepatopathy developed in a patient with new-onset fulminant type 1 diabetes: the role of image modalities in diagnosing hepatic glycogen deposition including gradient-dual-echo MRI.
A 21-year-old male patient with new-onset fulminant T1D complicated with diabetic ketoacidosis who subsequently developed GH just after the initiation of insulin treatment is demonstrated. Expand
Toxicidad hepática recurrente secundaria a metilprednisolona intravenosa
The case of a middle-aged woman with multiple scle rosis who received a bolus of methylprednisolone on three occasions for the management of relapsing disease, with the development of repeated episodes of elevated liver enzymes after corticoid administration is reported. Expand
Hepatocellular Glycogen Accumulation in the Setting of Poorly Controlled Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus: Case Report and Review of the Literature
A case of a 23-year-old woman with a medical history of poorly controlled type 1 DM and gastroesophageal reflux disease who presented with progressively worsening right-sided abdominal pain and an aggressive glucose control regimen was implemented leading to resolution of symptoms and improvement in AST, ALT, and ALP.

Dumping syndrome is proposed to be a cause of hepatocellular glycogenosis, the latter representing a form of acquired glycogenic hepatopathy. Expand
Focal Hepatic Glycogenosis in a Patient With Uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus Type 1.
This is the first reported case of abnormal focal glycogen deposition in a patient with diabetes mellitus type 1 with imaging and pathologic correlation and awareness of the imaging appearance of focal glycogens deposition can help to distinguish it from other pathologic conditions. Expand
Hepatic glycogenosis: An underdiagnosed complication of diabetes mellitus?
The aim of this article is to review the epidemiology, clinical characteristics, pathogenesis and histology of HG, a benign disease that is potentially reversible by improving glycemic control, whereas NAFLD can progress to cirrhosis. Expand
