    Abstract

    A distinct peliosis-like lesion arose in the liver allograft of a 51 year old man. This lesion was caused by necrotic, fat-laden hepatocytes that released fat globules into the sinusoids. These then became strikingly distended with cysts, thus mimicking peliosis hepatitis. It is suggested that this lesion be called lipopeliosis.
