Abstract

Background/Aims: Intermediate filament proteins contain few aggregates as their main component. Among those, Mallory-Denk bodies (MDBs) are by far the best recognized component. To identify the presence of MDBs in individuals having chronic liver disease and to evaluate the correlation among MDBs and steatosis as well as the severity and zonal distribution of hepatocyte balloon degeneration.
