Caption: Liver cirrhosis. Light micrograph of human liver affected by cirrhosis, the structural degeneration resulting from sustained damage to liver cells. Here, pigmented fibrous tissue (black) cuts across liver lobules (light brown) disturbing the organisation of the lobules. These structural changes damage liver cell function and disrupt the flow of blood through the organ. Dilated veins are thus liable to rupture. Nodules of regenerating liver cells are also formed which causes blockage. Causes of liver cirrhosis include alcohol abuse and chronic hepatitis, but, in the case of cryptogenic cirrhosis, there is no known cause. Magnification: x30 at 6x7cm size.
