Physician Biography

I specialize in livers diseases, particularly in liver cancer. Together with my colleagues, we analyze liver tissue specimens obtained from liver biopsies or from surgery to help in understanding important aspects of the tumor. We use state-of-the-art technologies to stage the tumor, characterize its biological features and suggest possible targets for innovative treatment. We participate in the liver cancer tumor board and provide our input on every case in which tissue samples are needed.

Curriculum Vitae

Lysosomal acid lipase deficiency (LAL-D)

Liver showing micro-vesicular steatosis and ceroid laden macrophages in the portal area in a patient with LAL-D.

Von-Meyenburg comples

These are benign bile ductular proliferations that I suspect are colonic adenoma equivalent in the liver, and give rise to sporadic Cholangiocarcinoma.
