Caption: Cirrhotic liver in Wilson's disease. Light micrograph of a section through a liver affected by cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver as a result of long-term liver damage. This can be caused by alcohol abuse or liver disease such as viral hepatitis. Cirrhosis progresses slowly and often does not cause symptoms until it is advanced and liver failure sets in. Here, the cirrhosis is a result of hepatitis (liver inflammation) caused by Wilson's disease (or hepatolenticular degeneration), a genetic disorder in which copper accumulates in tissues.
