Caption: Liver cirrhosis. Human liver with cirrhosis and atrophy (wasting) of the left lobe (on the right), caused by excessive alcohol consumption. In cirrhosis the liver typically becomes knobbly in appearance, with a characteristic tawny (light brown to orange) colour as seen here. Excessive alcohol causes death or injury to liver cells, and the liver responds by producing fibrous scar tissue between nodules of regenerating cells. Mild jaundice, oedema, blood vomiting, mental confusion are symptoms. Cirrhosis can be slowed by abstinence from alcohol; tissue damage is usually permanent.
