Cirrhosis is the death of liver cells, causing the liver to gradually shrink in size.
Serious dysfunction of the liver occurs. The normal tissue of the organ is gradually replaced by nodules of abnormal cells that do not do any useful work.
Growing, this connective tissue squeezes vessels of the liver, which leads to the death of large parts of tissue.
