Diagram depicting progression of normal liver (a) from injury to resorption/regression. Chronic injury leads to parenchymal extinction and the eventual approximation of portal tracts to central hepatic veins (b, c); there is then obliteration of portal veins and fibrous adhesion formation between the portal tract and central vein, which may expand over time (d, e); when regression occurs (f), there is resorption of fibrous septa, but the portal–central vein approximation remains; adapted with permission from Wanless et al. [6]
