Cross-section of liver affected by cirrhosis

Cirrhosis of the liver. Cross-section of a liver affected by alcohol induced cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is a disease in which bands of fibrosis (internal scarring) break up the internal structure of the liver. The surviving cells multiply to form regeneration nodules separated by scar tissue. This gives a cirrhotic liver a typical granulated aspect. Heavy alcohol consumption is the most common cause of cirrhosis in developed countries. Hepatitis, the inflammation of the liver, may also lead to cirrhosis. The most common symptoms are mild jaundice, oedema, mental confusion and vomiting of blood

Alcohol Cirrhosis Liver Condition Disorder Health Care


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from Science Photo Library showcases a cross-section of a liver affected by cirrhosis, specifically alcohol-induced cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is a debilitating disease characterized by the disruption of the liver's internal structure due to bands of fibrosis or internal scarring. As a result, surviving cells in the liver multiply and form regeneration nodules that are separated by scar tissue, giving the cirrhotic liver its distinctive granulated appearance. In developed countries, heavy alcohol consumption stands as the primary cause of this condition. However, hepatitis, an inflammation of the liver, can also lead to cirrhosis. The most common symptoms associated with this progressive disease include mild jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), oedema (swelling), mental confusion, and even vomiting blood. This thought-provoking image serves as a reminder of both the destructive power of excessive alcohol consumption on our vital organs and how diseases like cirrhosis can profoundly impact our health. It underscores the importance of responsible drinking habits and raises awareness about seeking medical care for conditions such as hepatitis to prevent further complications leading to irreversible damage.
