The fifteenth quarterly clinicopathological conference was held at the Royal College of Physicians of London on 29 July 1976. The conference was chaired by Professor Sheila Sherlock (1). She began by introducing Professor Jean-Pierre Benhamou (2), professor of gastroenterology at the Beaujon-Clichy Hospital, University of Paris, who was to open the discussion of the case. Professor Sherlock emphasised that this case had no great dénouement but was more a talking point for various aspects of hepatology, a review of the state of the art. Dr James Scott (3) presented the case, and Dr R Dick (4) described the radiological findings.
