Abstract:

330 specimens of liver were dissected from fetuses of varying gestational age at dissection hall of NKPSIMS & RC. Nagpur for a period of three years. The livers were dissected out & dimensions of right & left lobe were recorded according to the Anatomical & Physiological classification along with CR length & abdominal circumference of respective fetuses. The various dimensions, i.e., vertical, transverse & anterior posterior length showed similar growth pattern in both right & left anatomical & physiological lobes. The regression in growth rate of left lobe either anatomical or physiological was seen to be much more significant than right lobe. The study showed a definite increase in growth rate at 6th & 7th month of intra uterine life in both the lobes indicating maximum haemopoietic activity.

Keywords: Liver, right lobe, left lobe, caudate lobe, quadrate lobe, gall bladder.
