A case of micronodular cirrhosis of the alcoholic type developed following an intestianl bypass surgery in a 47 year-old nonalcoholic male patient is presented. The patient denied any drug use of a long duration and had no diabetes mellitus. Five years before, a side to side ileo-transverse colon anastomosis had been performed for perforated intestinal tuberculosis at 1 m proximal to the ileocecal valve, bypassing a short segment of ileum (about 1.5 m) and transverse colon. The ileum distal to the perforated site had been found completely stenosed. He was severely lean with evidences of nutritional deficiency such as low serum levels of the albumin and vitamin B12. The liver biopsy showed a fatty change, Mallory bodies and perihepatocellular collagenosis within the cirrhotic nodules. The present case suggests that, when there are blind loop formation and nutritional deficiency, hepatic changes identical to those following jejunoileal bypass could develop even by reduction of a shore segment of the small intestine.
Key Words: Jejunoileal bypass; Alcoholic hepatitis; Alcohloic cirrhosis; Mallory body; Malnutrition
