What is cirrhosis of the liver?


Liver cirrhosis is the scarring of the liver that leads to liver failure. This scarring occurs as a result of damage to the liver.

Statistics of liver cirrhosis

  • 50% of liver disease in the US is related to alcohol consumption.
  • The growing number of cases related to chronic hepatitis C.
  • 4th leading cause of death among people between 35 and 54 years of age.

What are the types of cirrhosis?

There are five types of cirrhosis. They are:
1) Alcohol (Laennee’s cirrhosis)
2) Post necrotic cirrhosis
3) Biliary cirrhosis
4) Cardiac cirrhosis
5) NASH (Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis)

Etiology and pathology

1) Alcoholic (Laennee’s cirrhosis):

  • It is associated with alcohol abuse.
  • Alcohol cirrhosis is preceded by a theoretically reversible fatty infiltration of the liver cells.
  • Widespread scar formation.

2) Post necrotic cirrhosis:

  • It is caused due to complications of toxic or viral hepatitis.
  • Post necrotic cirrhosis accounts for 20% of the cases of cirrhosis.
  • Broadbands of scar tissue form within the liver.


3) Biliary cirrhosis

  • It is associated with chronic biliary obstruction and infection
  • Biliary cirrhosis accounts for 15% of all cases of cirrhosis.
  • Normally secrete 1000 ml bile per day.

4) Cardiac cirrhosis:

  • Cardiac cirrhoisis is resulted from long-standing severe right-sided heart failure.

Overall causes of cirrhosis

  • Alcohol
  • Hepatitis-B infection
  • Hepatitis-C infection
  • Drugs ( alpha methyldopa, methotrexate)
  • Primary biliary cirrhosis
  • Autoimmune hepatitis
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD)
  • Type IV glycogen storage disease.

What are the clinical manifestations of cirrhosis?

There is no specific drug therapy for cirrhosis. Drugs are used to treat symptoms and complications of advanced liver disease.

  • Sodium retention (Lasix)
  • Aldosterone production (Spironaldactone )
  • B vitamins.
  • Ammonia retention (Lactulose)
