Caption: Liver cirrhosis. Gross specimen of a liver in a case of postnecrotic cirrhosis. This is where cell death (necrosis) occurs throughout whole areas of the liver called hepatic lobules. This forms large scars and the liver surface here appears rough and lumpy instead of a smooth healthy appearance. This type of cirrhosis (liver damage) may result from a viral infection such as hepatitis, poisoning with toxic substances, or failure of the blood supply. Drug treatments can prevent complications. Liver transplantation, though uncommon, is the preferred treatment.
