Caption: Liver cirrhosis. Artwork showing the development alcohol-induced liver cirrhosis. The liver is at lower left, with the cirrhosis developing in the liver sections from upper left to lower right. In cirrhosis, bands of fibrosis (internal scarring) break up the internal structure of the liver. The surviving cells multiply to form regeneration nodules separated by scar tissue (white). This gives a cirrhotic liver a granulated look. Heavy alcohol consumption is the most common cause of cirrhosis in developed countries. Hepatitis, the inflammation of the liver, may also lead to cirrhosis. Symptoms include mild jaundice, oedema, mental confusion and the vomiting of blood.
