Cirrhosis is characterized by changes in the basic structure with the development of liver fibrosis and nodule formation. Fibrosis is an irreversible change, causing replacement of liver cells without cell function. Ultimately it is the reaction of the liver to external aggression. Often occurs in adults and is more common among 50-60 years old and is an important cause of death. Fibrosis can lead to circulatory changes leading to portal hypertension and esophageal varices, whose disruption can cause severe bleeding. You can still progress to liver failure.

Cirrhosis is the leading cause of death from liver nature, excluding tumors. Its main causes are alcoholism and chronic hepatitis (types B and C). Also can occur as a complication of obstruction of bile ducts, some chronic heart disease (congestive heart failure) or due to drug intoxication. Other possible causes are: schistosomiasis, autoimmune disease, Wilson's disease, porphyria and hematocromatose.
