Liver Cirrhosis is a disease condition that affect normal liver function due to liver tissue damage caused gradually over a period of time from months to years exhibiting often no early symptoms and on worsen the person feel tired, itching, swelling over lower legs or fluid fill up in the abdomen.

 

Cause

Cirrhosis is most commonly caused by alcoholhepatitis Bhepatitis C and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver disease is caused due to high cholestremia, chronic diabetes, overweight, high blood pressure or gall stones. More than one causes may be residing in one person.

 

Pathophysiology

Cirrhosis is most commonly preceded by hepatitis or fatty liver. This is the most significant stage at which cirrhosis can be prevented and fully reversible to a normal liver function. The onset of Cirrhosis starts when a scar tissue is formed replacing the damaged liver tissue which blocks the portal blood flow.

Damaged parenchyma activates the stellate cells which forms fibrosis.
