A term used pathologically to describe BILIRUBIN staining of the BASAL GANGLIA; BRAIN STEM; and CEREBELLUM and clinically to describe a syndrome associated with HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA. Clinical features include athetosis, MUSCLE SPASTICITY or hypotonia, impaired vertical gaze, and DEAFNESS. Nonconjugated bilirubin enters the brain and acts as a neurotoxin, often in association with conditions that impair the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER (e.g., SEPSIS).

Peripheral hepatojejunostomy as palliative treatment for irresectable malignant tumors of the liver hilum. (1/378)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the concept of surgical decompression of the biliary tree by peripheral hepatojejunostomy for palliative treatment of jaundice in patients with irresectable malignant tumors of the liver hilum. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Jaundice, pruritus, and recurrent cholangitis are major clinical complications in patients with obstructive cholestasis resulting from malignant tumors of the liver hilum. Methods for palliative treatment include endoscopic stenting, percutaneous transhepatic drainage, and surgical decompression. The palliative treatment of choice should be safe, effective, and comfortable for the patient. METHODS: In a retrospective study, surgical technique, perioperative complications, and efficacy of treatment were analyzed for 56 patients who had received a peripheral hepatojejunostomy between 1982 and 1997. Laparotomy in all of these patients had been performed as an attempt for curative resection. RESULTS: Hepatojejunostomy was exclusively palliative in 50 patients and was used for bridging to resection or transplantation in 7. Anastomosis was bilateral in 36 patients and unilateral in 20. The 1-month mortality in the study group was 9%; median survival was 6 months. In patients surviving >1 month, a marked and persistent decrease in cholestasis was achieved in 87%, although complete return to normal was rare. Among the patients with a marked decrease in cholestasis, 72% had no or only mild clinical symptoms such as fever or jaundice. CONCLUSIONS: Peripheral hepatojejunostomy is a feasible and reasonably effective palliative treatment for patients with irresectable tumors of the liver hilum. In patients undergoing exploratory laparotomy for attempted curative resection, this procedure frequently leads to persistent-although rarely complete-decompression of the biliary tree. In a few cases it may also be used for bridging to transplantation or liver resection after relief of cholestasis.  (+info)

Liver disease in pregnancy. (2/378)

Acute viral hepatitis is the most common cause of jaundice in pregnancy. The course of acute hepatitis is unaffected by pregnancy, except in patients with hepatitis E and disseminated herpes simplex infections, in which maternal and fetal mortality rates are significantly increased. Chronic hepatitis B or C infections may be transmitted to neonates; however, hepatitis B virus transmission is effectively prevented with perinatal hepatitis B vaccination and prophylaxis with hepatitis B immune globulin. Cholelithiasis occurs in 6 percent of pregnancies; complications can safely be treated with surgery. Women with chronic liver disease or cirrhosis exhibit a higher risk of fetal loss during pregnancy. Preeclampsia is associated with HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes and low platelet count) syndrome, acute fatty liver of pregnancy, and hepatic infarction and rupture. These rare diseases result in increased maternal and fetal mortality. Treatment involves prompt delivery, whereupon the liver disease quickly reverses. Therapy with penicillamine, trientine, prednisone or azathioprine can be safely continued during pregnancy.  (+info)

Case of sepsis caused by Bifidobacterium longum. (3/378)

We report a case of sepsis caused by Bifidobacterium longum in a 19-year-old male who had developed high fever, jaundice, and hepatomegaly after acupuncture therapy with small gold needles. Anaerobic, non-spore-forming, gram-positive bacilli were isolated from his blood and finally identified as B. longum. He recovered completely after treatment with ticarcillin and metronidazole. To our knowledge, this is the first report of incidental sepsis caused by B. longum.  (+info)

The natural history of histologically proved drug induced liver disease. (4/378)

BACKGROUND: The long term outcome of drug related liver disease is unknown. AIMS: To study the natural history of histologically proved drug induced hepatotoxicity. METHODS: 110 patients with liver biopsies coded either as drug induced liver disease or hepatitis/cholestasis of unknown aetiology were identified from hospital records 1978-1996. Review of case notes and histology identified 44 patients with definite drug induced hepatotoxicity. Forty surviving patients were invited to attend a follow up clinic. History, examination, full liver screen, and isotope and ultrasound liver scans were repeated in all patients. Repeat liver biopsies were offered to patients with abnormal liver tests. RESULTS: Presentation at index biopsy was jaundice in 24 patients, abnormal liver tests in 17, and hepatic failure in three. Antibiotics (n=13) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (n=11) were the most common drugs implicated. Initial histology showed acute hepatitis in six, chronic hepatitis in 20, and cholestasis in 18. At 1-19 years (median 5 years) follow up, 13/33 (39%) patients had persistent significant abnormalities in their liver blood tests and/or scans. Three of the five repeat liver biopsies performed showed significant abnormalities. Factors predicting persistence or development of chronic liver disease were fibrosis and continued exposure to the drug. CONCLUSIONS: Drugs should be considered in the differential diagnosis of abnormal liver function and/or histology, as failure to withdraw the offending drug is associated with a high risk of persistent liver damage.  (+info)

Biliary obstruction in hematopoietic cell transplant recipients: an uncommon diagnosis with specific causes. (5/378)

Jaundice is a common problem in marrow transplant recipients. The incidence of bile duct obstruction in this setting is unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of biliary obstruction, the causes, and outcomes following marrow transplant. Consecutive cases were reviewed at two major transplant centers in the United States from 1969 to 1996 at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and 1989 to 1996 at the City of Hope National Medical Center. Nine cases of biliary obstruction were identified as a cause of jaundice in 7412 marrow transplant recipients, an incidence of 0.12%. The presentation was bimodal, with seven cases occurring prior to day 100 and two occurring 2 to 4 years after transplantation. The age distribution was 15 to 50 years and all patients had received allogeneic transplants. The causes of obstruction included gallbladder sludge (n=1), a duodenal hematoma (n=1), choledocholithiasis with biliary pancreatitis (n=1), bile duct infection (n=2), recurrent malignancy (n=1), choledocholithiasis associated with a benign stricture (n=1), Epstein-Barr virus-related lymphoproliferative disorder (n=1), and a benign stricture of unknown etiology (n=1). Biliary obstruction is a rare cause of jaundice in the post-transplant period. The presentation was similar to that of other post-transplant hepatobiliary problems, but with disparate causes.  (+info)

Neonatal bilirubin production, reflected by carboxyhaemoglobin concentrations, in Down's syndrome. (6/378)

AIM: To determine whether increased bilirubin production, reflected by blood carboxyhaemoglobin (COHb) values, is responsible for hyperbilirubinaemia in cases of Down's syndrome with no obvious cause for excessive jaundice. METHODS: Blood was sampled on the third day of life for COHb, total haemoglobin (tHb), and serum total bilirubin, from 19 consecutively born neonates with Down's syndrome (a subset of 34 term babies), who had developed hyperbilirubinaemia (serum bilirubin >/= 256 micromol), and from 32 term controls. COHb, measured by gas chromatography, was corrected for inspired CO (COHbc) and expressed as a percentage of tHb. RESULTS: Significantly more of the Down's syndrome subset developed hyperbilirubinaemia than the controls (10/19 (52%) vs 7/32 (22%), relative risk 2.4, 95% confidence intervals (CI) 1.10 to 5.26). Third day serum bilirubin values (mean (SD)) were higher in the Down's syndrome neonates than in controls (214 +- 63 micromol/l vs 172 +- 54 micromol/l, respectively, p=0.015). Mean (SD) COHbc values were significantly higher in the Down's syndrome neonates than in controls (0.92 +- 0. 24% vs 0.63 +- 0.17%; p<0.0001). However, Down's syndrome neonates who became hyperbilirubinaemic had similar COHbc values to those who did not (0.87 +- 0.26% and 0.95 +- 0.23%, respectively). These values contrast with those of the controls, in whom a significant increase in COHbc was associated with hyperbilirubinaemia (0.74 +- 0. 15% vs 0.60 +- 0.16%, respectively; p<0.05). tHb values were similar in both groups. CONCLUSIONS: Down's syndrome neonates had a greater risk of hyperbilirubinaemia, and higher COHbc values, than controls. However, excessive bilirubin production could not be exclusively responsible for the hyperbilirubinaemia. By inference, decreased bilirubin elimination probably plays a greater part in its pathogenesis than in controls. Down's syndrome neonates may have abnormal erythropoiesis, leading to increased haem turnover.  (+info)

Determination of the sum of bilirubin sugar conjugates in plasma by bilirubin oxidase. (7/378)

BACKGROUND: A reliable indicator of cholestasis is the presence of abnormal concentrations of bilirubin mono- and diglucuronide [conjugated bilirubin (CB)] in blood. A routine assay of CB is available only to those who possess a certain type of clinical analyzer. We describe a two-point manual method for CB that could be adapted as a rate assay to automated clinical analyzers. METHODS: The measurement of CB is based on its oxidation to biliverdin by bilirubin oxidase. The resulting decrease in absorbance at 460 nm is proportional to the CB concentration. The assay is calibrated with solutions of ditaurobilirubin in human serum. RESULTS: Under the conditions of the assay (0.1 mol/L glycine buffer, pH 10.0; reaction time, 2 min), only 5% of unconjugated bilirubin is oxidized and delta-bilirubin is not oxidized at all. Results obtained with the bilirubin oxidase method agreed well with those obtained by HPLC. The long-term CVs at CB concentrations of 6 and 63.4 mg/L were 20% and 2.6%, respectively. The reference values, established by analyzing 51 plasma specimens from healthy adults, were 0.0-1.2 mg/L, with a mean value of 0.2 mg/L. CONCLUSIONS: The proposed method for CB has good analytical specificity and obviates the requirement for HPLC or a dry chemistry analyzer. The measurement of CB in blood is superior to the measurement of direct bilirubin because an abnormal concentration of direct bilirubin does not necessarily indicate the presence of cholestasis.  (+info)

The prognostic and pathophysiologic role of pro- and antiinflammatory cytokines in severe malaria. (8/378)

Pro- and antiinflammatory cytokines were measured on admission in 287 consecutive Vietnamese adults with severe falciparum malaria. Plasma interleukin (IL)-6, IL-10, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha concentrations and the IL-6: IL-10 ratio were significantly higher in patients who died than in survivors (P<.001). On multivariate analysis, hyperparasitemia, jaundice, and shock were all associated independently with raised IL-6, IL-10, and interferon-gamma, and acute renal failure specifically with raised TNF-alpha levels. Cerebral malaria patients, particularly those without other vital organ dysfunction, had significantly lower levels of these cytokines (P=.006), reflecting a more localized pathology. Serial IL-6 and IL-10 measurements made on 43 patients who died and matched survivors indicated a relative deficiency in IL-10 production as death approached. Elevated plasma cytokines in severe malaria are associated with systemic pathologic abnormalities, not cerebral involvement. Both the overall magnitude of the cytokine responses and the eventual imbalance between the pro- and antiinflammatory responses are important determinants of mortality.  (+info)

Jaundice is one of the serious acute health problems which can be treated easily but when not taken seriously can even be fatal. There are many reports of jaundice coming up everyday. Jaundice affects almost every age group and is very severe for new born babies. Here are few things everyone needs to know about jaundice.. Jaundice is a medical condition where the colour of the skin becomes yellow along with the whites of the eyes. Also the body Fluids may also become yellow. The colour of the skin as well as that of the eyes vary from person to person. This depends upon the level of bilirubin which is the causal factor of Jaundice. Bilirubin is a waste material which is commonly found in the blood. The moderate levels of Bilirubin in the body will show a pale yellow colour but if the level of bilirubin is increased then the colour of the body becomes brown from yellow. This condition is a very serious condition of Jaundice and may even cause the death of a person. In the United States about 60% ...
Jaundice is yellowing of your skin and the whites of your eyes. It is caused by a pigment, or colouring, called bilirubin that comes from the breakdown of red blood cells. A healthy liver removes the pigment from your blood. If the liver is not working right, the pigment can build up in the blood and get into the skin and other tissues. Many diseases can cause jaundice, including hepatitis, gallstones, and liver damage from heavy drinking over a long time. Cancer of the pancreas also can cause it. Some medicines that can damage the liver also cause jaundice.. The treatment for jaundice depends on the cause. You may need medicine to treat an infection. Or you may need to have your gallbladder removed. Some people need to stop drinking alcohol. If another disease is causing jaundice, treating the disease will cure the jaundice. If a medicine you are taking is causing jaundice, your doctor may switch you to another one. ...

Screening all newborns for excessive bilirubin in the blood can significantly decrease the incidence of severe jaundice which, in extreme cases, can lead to seizures and brain damage, according to researchers at UCSF Childrens Hospital and Kaiser Permanentes Division of Research in Oakland, CA.. The study, one of the first to examine the effectiveness of universal screening for hyperbilirubinemia, appears in the current issue of Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The study is one of six in this issue to explore the topic of bilirubin and hyperbilirubinemia.. Hyperbilirubinemia is caused by an elevation of a bile pigment, called bilirubin, in the blood. Bilirubin is made when the body breaks down old red blood cells, and high levels can cause jaundice, a condition that makes the newborns skin and the white part of the eyes look yellow.. The researchers explain that most newborns have a rise in bilirubin in the days following birth. However, very high ...
In Jaundice, the skin and the front white portion of the eye turn yellow. It is a condition that takes place as a result of building up of a substance called Bilirubin. Newborn babies are more susceptible to jaundice, as it takes time for their livers to function properly. There are three kinds of jaundice that tend to affect adults, namely, Hemolytic jaundice, Hepatocellular jaundice and Obstructive jaundice.. ...
Because jaundice occurs in over 75% of newborns, it can be difficult to prevent. While in the womb, the baby relies on the mothers liver to perform most of the reduction in excess bilirubin. When the baby is born his or her liver may not yet have had the practice to do this on their own. With time their own livers will be able to remove excess bilirubin.. The best way to prevent jaundice from becoming more sever is to ensure that your infant is getting the nutrients he or she needs by properly breast feeding them. Infants should be fed 8 to 12 times a day on average and be fed approximately every two hours.. Children should be examined within 5 days of birth by a trained childrens physician. The childs doctor may be able to note signs that suggest jaundice before the parents can and thus prevent the jaundice from becoming worse. Also, make sure to check your infants urine and stool. Urine should be odorless and clear, if it is a yellowish color then that may be a sign of jaundice. A stool ...

Jaundice (also called icterus) is when the skin and the whites of the eyes become a yellow color.[1] People with jaundice have a problem with their liver, which stops it from removing dead red blood cells properly. These blood cells contain a chemical called bilirubin.[1] Bilirubin causes the yellow coloring of the skin. Jaundice is common in newly born babies. It usually starts the second day after birth.[2] Jaundice can also be caused by other diseases, like malaria, hepatitis, or gallstones. Jaundice is the most common of all liver problems. The yellow colour of the skin and mucous membranes happens because of an increase in the bile pigment, bilirubin, in the blood.[2] The bile, made by the liver, is a vital digestive fluid needed for proper nutrition. It also stops decaying changes in food. If the bile is stopped from entering the intestines there is an increase in gases and other products. Normally, the production of bile and its flow is constant. ...

Jaundice is a yellowing of the skin and of the whites of the eyes that is caused by an excess of the chemical bilirubin in the blood. Jaundice develops whenever bilirubin cannot effectively be eliminated from the body by the liver or when there is increased destruction of red blood cells that release bilirubin into the bloodstream. Therefore, causes of jaundice can include liver disease including hepatitis or cirrhosis, obstruction to the flow of bile into the intestine, or anemia caused by red blood cell destruction (hemolytic anemia).
Breastfed babies are more likely than formula-fed infants to develop jaundice. However, jaundice occurs mainly in babies who are not nursing well. These babies may not get enough calories and may become dehydrated, both of which may contribute to jaundice. This should not be a reason to avoid breastfeeding, however, as breast milk is the ideal food for babies and provides many health benefits, including reducing the risk of infections. Breastfeeding mothers should nurse their babies at least 8 to 12 times a day for the first several days of life to help keep their babys bilirubin level down ...

Jaundice is the yellow color seen in the skin of many newborns. It happens when a chemical called bilirubin builds up in the babys blood. Jaundice can occur in babies of any race or ethnicity, regardless of skin color. Low levels of bilirubin are not a problem, but a few babies have too much jaundice. If not treated, high levels of bilirubin can cause brain damage and a life-long condition called kernicterus. Yet, early detection and management of jaundice can prevent kernicterus. At a minimum, babies should be assessed for jaundice every 8 to 12 hours in the first 48 hours of life and again before 5 days of age ...
Neonatal jaundice treatment. Mouth of a baby under blue light during phototherapy treatment for neonatal jaundice. Jaundice is a condition in which there is an excess of the yellow pigment bilirubin in the bodys tissues, which causes yellow discolouration of the skin and eyes. Bilirubin is the breakdown product of haem, the oxygen- carrying chemical in red blood cells. In neonatal jaundice, failure of the liver to process the bilirubin leads to its accumulation in tissues. This is very common in newborn babies, and is usually harmless. The blue light breaks down the pigment, allowing it to be excreted in faeces and urine. - Stock Image M820/0592

The investigations of direct jaundice are usually done if the jaundice last for more than 2 weeks. The first step is to measure the blood level of total bilirubin and direct bilirubin. If it suggests direct jaundice (i.e. direct bilirubin , 2 mg/dl), then evaluation starts in a staged manner if baby is less than 6 weeks and non sick. If otherwise then parallel investigations are advised to reach early diagnosis.. The doctor should first assess the liver function by measuring liver enzymes (SGPT, SGOT,GGT), serum albumin and prothrombin time. A baby with high enzyme level, low albumin and prolonged prothrombin time can become sick rapidly and hence should be admitted in hospital and managed further.. In staged approach rapid diagnosis of treatable conditions like infection (blood counts, blood culture and urine culture), low thyroid hormones (T3, T4, and TSH), and inborn error of metabolism (genetic disorder due to enzyme defects like galactossemia) is done first. Once diagnosed this should be ...

INTRODUCTION: About 50% of term and 80% of preterm babies develop jaundice, which usually appears 2 to 4 days after birth, and resolves spontaneously after 1 to 2 weeks. Jaundice is caused by bilirubin deposition in the skin. Most jaundice in newborn infants is a result of increased red cell breakdown and decreased bilirubin excretion. METHODS AND OUTCOMES: We conducted a systematic review and aimed to answer the following clinical question: What are the effects of treatments for unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia in term and preterm infants? We searched Medline, Embase, The Cochrane Library, and other important databases up to February 2010 (Clinical Evidence reviews are updated periodically, please check our website for the most up-to-date version of this review ...
Jaundice is a light yellowing of the skin, mucous membranes, and sclera; it is generally detectable when bilirubin levels are about 3.0 mg/dL. Many patients may not be aware of the faint yellowing and present with seemingly unrelated symptoms. Up to 50% of patients with jaundice will have pruritus. The most important diagnoses to rule out are hemolytic anemias, viral hepatitis, chronic alcohol abuse, autoimmune hepatitis, medications, primary biliary cirrhosis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, cholelithiasis, surgical strictures, and obstructive malignancies. Acetaminophen, penicillins, and oral contraceptives are some of the more common medications associated with jaundice. ...

Jaundice, also known as icterus, is a yellowish or greenish pigmentation of the skin and whites of the eyes due to high bilirubin levels. It is commonly associated with itchiness. The feces may be pale and the urine dark. Jaundice in babies occurs in over half in the first week following birth and in most is not a problem. If bilirubin levels in babies are very high for too long, a type of brain damage, known as kernicterus, may occur. Causes of jaundice vary from non-serious to potentially fatal. Levels of bilirubin in blood are normally below 1.0 mg/dL (17 µmol/L) and levels over 2-3 mg/dL (34-51 µmol/L) typically results in jaundice. High bilirubin is divided into two types: unconjugated (indirect) and conjugated (direct). Conjugated bilirubin can be confirmed by finding bilirubin in the urine. Other conditions that can cause yellowish skin but are not jaundice include carotenemia from eating large amounts of certain foods and medications like rifampin. High unconjugated bilirubin may be ...
As part of the 2014-2015 Edson program cohort, the NeoLight team has been able to gather seed grants to develop a working prototype that is slightly bigger than a computer tablet. The device is fitted with 6-10 LED bulbs that produce a stronger intensity of light distributed evenly to an infants entire body. This results in quicker, more energy-efficient treatment of jaundice with no side effects, such as burns or rashes due to exposure to ultraviolet light.. Through ASUs connections, the startup was able to test the device at St. Josephs Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix. It was there that the team realized that the effective treatment of infant jaundice wasnt just a challenge in the developing world.. Most of the commonly used phototherapy devices in the U.S. are unwieldy, said Kopparthi. Additionally, the technology used doesnt allow for a quicker and energy-efficient way to treat an infant with jaundice based on the severity of the case.. To further address place-based ...

Now a question arises, why neonatal jaundice is so common today. It has many reasons, but one of the most common and susceptible one is cutting of umbilical cord earlier than right time.. The right time to cut the umbilical cord is 30-50 minutes after the delivery. It allows the infant to adjust in new world and temperature, thus the chances of any such disease decreases.. But today, especially in normal deliveries the umbilical cord is cut at the same time, when the baby is delivered. This creates disturbance in temperature maintenance and makes baby harassed..

Hyperbilirubinemia is a condition in which there is too much bilirubin in the blood. When red blood cells break down, a substance called bilirubin is formed. Babies are not easily able to get rid of the bilirubin and it can build up in the blood and other tissues and fluids of the babys body. This is called hyperbilirubinemia. Because bilirubin has a pigment or coloring, it causes a yellowing of the babys skin and tissues. This is called jaundice.. Depending on the cause of the hyperbilirubinemia, jaundice may appear at birth or at any time afterward.. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Analysis of Hepatic Transport of Cefpiramide in Rats with Obstructive Jaundice by Using Isolated Hepatocytes. AU - Yamao, Tadanao. AU - Nakayama, Seiya. AU - Kurosaki, Yuji. AU - Nakayama, Taiji. AU - Kimura, Toshikiro. PY - 1990/10. Y1 - 1990/10. N2 - The mechanism of the diminished biliary clearance of cefpiramide (CPM) in rats with obstructive jaundice (OJ) was investigated by using isolated hepatocytes. The kinetics of CPM uptake by hepatocytes isolated from normal rats and rats with OJ could be explained by the combination of saturable carrier-mediated and nonsaturable first-order rate processes. The maximum uptake rate (Vmax) of the carrier-mediated process was significantly decreased in OJ, compared with normal hepatocytes, while the Michaelis constant (Km) and the first-order rate constant (kd) were not significantly different. This result indicated that the number of CPM transport carriers was decreased in OJ hepatocytes. Further, no CPM uptake occurred from the serum of ...

Blood group incompatibility (Rh or ABO problems): if a baby has a different blood type than the mother, the mother might produce antibodies that destroy the infants red blood cells. This creates a sudden buildup of bilirubin in the babys blood. Incompatibility jaundice can begin as early as the first day of life. Rh problems once caused the most severe form of jaundice, but now can be prevented with an injection of Rh immune globulin to the mother within 72 hours after delivery, which prevents her from forming antibodies that might endanger any subsequent babies ...

Jaundice in the newborn Pale stools and a plasma conjugated bilirubin level greater than 30 ␮mol/l suggest the possibility of hepatitis or atresia of the bile ducts, and the advice of a paediatrician is needed. If there is a suspicion that the jaundice is related to breastfeeding, the other conditions causing jaundice should be excluded and the mother advised to continue breastfeeding. If the plasma bilirubin concentration is rising rapidly and breastfeeding is stopped for 48 hours, the infants plasma bilirubin concentration will fall abruptly and will not usually rise on return to breastfeeding. Although about 10% of mothers are colonised and about 25% of their infants acquire this organism, only one in 1000 infants has symptoms. About half of those with symptoms die. In the early onset type, which occurs in the first few days of life, there may be a persistently raised respiratory rate followed by the vague features of septicaemia and later peripheral cyanosis.

Fine-needle aspirate and cytology - To perform this procedure, a small gauge needle is inserted through the skin into the liver. A syringe is used to aspirate some cells from the liver. The cells are placed on a glass slide, stained and studied under a microscope. This is the least invasive and quickest test, but it has certain limitations. Because only a few cells are obtained, it is possible that a representative sample from the liver will not be obtained. It is also not possible to view the cells in their normal relationship to each other.. Needle biopsy - This procedure is similar to the fine-needle aspirate except a larger biopsy needle is used. Often, this test is performed during an ultrasound examination and is called anultrasound-guided needle biopsy. The needle biopsy gives a core of tissue, not just a few cells. The sample is fixed in formaldehyde and submitted to a pathologist for analysis (a technique called histopathology). General anesthesia is required, but the cat is ...
