Copper in alcoholic liver disease

Copper in alcoholic liver disease

Journal of Pathology 131(3): 275

The frequency with which intrahepatocytic copper granules could be demonstrated in alcohol-induced liver disease was studied in patients with histories of excessive alcohol intake and histological features of alcoholic liver disease. Sections from 43 patients post mortem and 33 needle biopsy samples were stained by rubeanic acid, rhodamine and orcein methods. Of the patients 44 had cirrhosis (41 male, 3 female) and 32 showed other forms of chronic alcoholic liver disease (27 male, 5 female).
