A total of 28 patients with leukemia underwent intensive therapy with megadose chemotherapy and stem cell transplantation. Of 16 patients who had busulfan therapy, 2 developed the clinical syndrome of veno-occlusive disease of the liver (VOD) characterized by progressive abnormalities in liver function, abdominal pain, and ascites. Postmortem findings showed VOD of the central and sublobular hepatic vein. Immunohistochemical analysis using anti-actin and CD34 mAb was employed in an attempt to clarify the process of fibrosis. Actin positive cells had accumulated around the central vein. Ito cell activation might be responsible for secondary fibrosis following endothelial injury. We report autopsy findings and immunohistochemical results.
