22). BRIDGING NECROSIS. The trichrome stain should also be interpreted cautiously in the setting of significant necrosis. Bridging necrosis can mimic bridging fibrosis on trichrome stain. Bridging necrosis in the setting of acute hepatitis that has lasted only a few days, for example from acetaminophen injury, is generally not a problem because the areas of necrosis will contain the dead hepatocytes. However, if there has been sufficient time for the hepatocytes to drop out and the liver sinusoidal connective tissue to condense (Fig.
