Abstract:

Congenital Hepatic Fibrosis (CHF) is a rare, autosomal recessive disease caused by a mutation in the ARPKD gene. It is based on dysgenesis of the biliary tract resulting from a malformation of the ductal plate of the interlobular bile ducts, as a result of impaired epithelio-mesenchymal inductive interactions with the formation of cystic extensions. In patients, clinical manifestations range from asymptomatic hepatosplenomegaly to severe manifestations such as acute liver failure and cirrhosis. Bleeding from esophageal varices, due to portal hypertension, is a serious complication of the disease, threatening death in the absence of urgent surgical intervention. Endoscopic sclerotherapy of esophageal varices is possible, but the most effective method of correcting portal hypertension is portosystemic shunting. This article presents a clinical case of a 24-year-old man with CHF.
