    Partial nodular transformation of the liver is a rare condition. Only six cases have been reported previously, all of which presented with bleeding from oesophageal varices. A further example of the disorder is recorded differing in the mode of onset with ascites. The total duration of the illness was eight weeks. Necropsy showed widespread evidence of liver cell damage with nodule formation around the hilum. These nodules had caused portal venous obstruction and ascites.
