Peliosis hepatis due to oxymetholone--a clinically benign disorder.


Peliosis hepatis is a rare hepatic disorder mainly diagnosed at surgery or autopsy. Clinical outcome is thus frequently poor. We report a patient in whom the diagnosis was established by percutaneous needly biopsy. Withdrawal of the steroid medication was followed by a prompt clinical improvement. Although histologic proof of regression is not available, this experience suggests a more favorable prognosis than previously thought possible.
