Caption

Illustration showing a healthy liver (left) and cirrhotic liver (right). Cirrhosis is a consequence of chronic liver disease characterized by replacement of liver tissue by fibrosis, scar tissue and regenerative nodules (lumps that occur as a result of a process in which damaged tissue is regenerated), leading to loss of liver function. A person with cirrhosis will sometimes have a yellow tinge (jaundice) to their skin; this is due to the liver failing to filter bilirubin, which is green, out of the blood.
