Nutmeg Liver: Causes, Treatments & Symptoms

Nutmeg liver is a condition characterized by the liver taking on the appearance of a speckled nutmeg kernel. This condition is typically caused by some type of venous congestion, resulting in congestion in the liver cells. The dark speckles on the liver represent those congested vessels, while the pale areas around it are the unaffected liver tissue. The formal name for this condition is congestive hepatopathy, although it may be referred to as cardiac cirrhosis if the condition is directly caused by congestive heart failure.
