About Liver Cirrhosis

Liver cirrhosis is a late stage of the liver that is caused by several liver diseases such as hepatitis or chronic alcohol liver disease.

  • Bruising easily
  • Accumulation of fluid in abdomen.

What are the Causes of Liver Cirrhosis?

The disorder is caused by the formation of scar tissue in the liver due to damage caused by the diseases. Every time when damage is caused to the liver, the liver repairs itself and the scar tissue forms.

Some other causes of the liver cirrhosis are thought to be genetic, while some occur later in the life and all of them are listed below:

  • Cystic fibrosis.
  • Accumulation of the copper in the liver and the condition is known as Wilson's disease.
  • Buildup of iron in the body which is known as hemochromatosis.

  • Accumulation of fat in the liver also known as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
  • Destruction of the bile ducts which is known as primary Biliary cirrhosis.
