Cirhosis of Liver
Were you looking for information about Cirrhosis? Cirhosis of liver is a common misspelling and variation of cirrhosis.
Cirrhosis is a condition in which large areas of the liver become badly scarred. It is the 12th leading cause of death by disease, killing about 26,000 people each year.
Cirrhosis can occur as the result of many long-term liver diseases, such as different types of hepatitis or medical conditions people are born with. However, it can also be caused by things like infections, drug and/or alcohol abuse, or a blocked bile duct. While the scarring is permanent, treatment can stop or slow down further progression and reduce complications.
