Nidhi Sheth, Gautam Chauhan, Rekha Iyer

Background Liver is a major organ in our body which is vulnerable to various insults such as metabolic, toxic, microbial, circulatory and neoplastic. There may be no prominent sign and symptoms of chronic liver diseases and therefore, they may go undiagnosed or found incidentally. Objectives The objective of the study was to find out the prevalence of silent liver diseases. Method 349 liver autopsies specimens were assessed and 10 cases were excluded due to autolysis. Specimens were examined grossly and microscopically and findings were recorded. Results Causes of death were- Myocardial infarction 52, RTA 39 and Poisoning 9. According to microscopic examination, majority of cases had fatty change 32.95 % followed by congestion 18.91 % and normal liver 17.48 %. Interpretation and Conclusion In this study of 349 cases, Males were 275 and Females were 74. Incidence of liver diseases was higher in 4th and 5th decades. The commonest finding was fatty change.
