Caption: A human liver showing cirrhosis. The cause, as in half the cases of cirrhosis, is unknown, although the disease is associated with alcoholism, hepatitis & malaria. Cirrhosis is a chronic disease, in which the liver cells are progressively destroyed & replaced by fatty or fibrous strands of tissue (broad bands visible here). Between the fibrous tissue, islands of regenerating cells form into nodules, which gives the liver a knobby appearance. It also appears tawny, as is seen in this picture.
