Caption: Liver cirrhosis. Artwork of a liver affected by early primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). This disease involves inflammation of the small bile ducts (one at right, green). White blood cells (leukocytes) involved in the inflammatory response are shown invading the duct (blue/white spheres). Branches of the hepatic artery (red) and the portal vein (blue) are seen at lower left. The cause of PBC is unknown, although there is some evidence that it is a misdirected immune response. Symptoms of PBC include itching skin, fatigue and jaundice. Treatment may include drugs and dietary supplements. A liver transplant may eventually be needed.
