Liver - General Pathology
- The lobed liver is the largest gland in the body
- A healthy liver is dark reddish-brown in colour with a smooth rubbery texture
- Liver lesions are common because:
- it is an area of high metabolic activity
- receives toxic agents from the gut via the portal blood system
- has an extensive vascular supply (prime site for metastatic disease)
- Although liver lesions are common, they seldom produce liver failure
- Diagnostic value because often indicates the presence and causes of disease in other organs and systems of the body
