Abstract

Diffuse nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver (NRH) is a rare cause of portal hypertension. It is characterized by diffuse nodularity of the liver without cirrhosis. NRH is usually associated with other diseases, most commonly Felty's syndrome. A case is reported in which maturity‐onset diabetes mellitus was accompanied by elevated serum insulin levels. Hepatotrophic hormones such as insulin or glucagon may play a role in the development of some cases of NRH.
