Although its pathogenesis remains unclear, NRH probably results from liver regeneration to maintain its functional capacity after ischemia-induced injury. An intrahepatic microvascular occlusive mechanism has been considered most likely pathogenetically. NRH may lead to portal hypertension. Thus, the diagnosis of Felty's syndrome must… CONTINUE READING
