Regression of fibrosis in pediatric liver diseases
- 58 Downloads
The concept of irreversibility of cirrhosis has been challenged in the recent past with literature in this regard, albeit still scarce, now being accumulated across all age groups, etiologies, and geographical regions. This small series of nine pediatric cases elegantly recapitulates the concept of regression of hepatic fibrosis/cirrhosis and paves way for further detailed studies to enable development of therapeutic anti-fibrotic modalities in future.
