Abstract

Background: liver is a soft, friable and largest gland in the body, occupying the upper part of the abdominal cavity just beneath the right diaphragm. The greater part of it is situated under cover of the ribs, extending to the left to reach the left diaphragm. Objective: to determine gross anatomical variations of liver and their clinical and surgical implications. To study variations in lobes, fissures and accessory lobes were observed. Material And Methods: a total of 50 formalin-fixed adult human livers, irrespective of the sex, were studied over a period of three years from Dr M K shah medical college. These livers were specifically observed for any variant or anomalous surface morphology. Result: out of 50 specimens, 16 were considered normal without any ac-accessory fissures, lobes, or presence of a pones hepatis. 34 livers had one or more morphological variations. 14 liver has accessory fissure, 10 liver are present with riedel’s lobe present in liver, 10 liver are present with pons hepatic. Conclusion: liver being the largest abdominal organ, the knowledge of its normal and variant morphology is essential for the clinicians. In general, accessory hepatic fissures/sulci are potential sources of diagnostic errors during imaging. On ultrasound or computerized tomography, any collection of fluid in these fissures may be mistaken for a liver cyst, intrahepatic hematoma, or liver abscess, which would require further radiologic workup.
