The liver, the largest internal organ, is located in the upper right quadrant of the abdominal cavity, just inferior to the diaphragm. It is partially surrounded by the ribs and extends from the level of the fifth intercostal space to the lower margin of the ribs. It is reddish brown in color and well supplied with blood vessels (figs. 17.26, 17.27, 17.28 and reference plates 51, 57, 74).
