The liver is 2nd
largest organ, first largest gland. Liver plays a vital role in synthesis of proteins (for example, albumin, clotting factors and complement), detoxification, and storage (for example, vitamin A). In addition, it participates in the metabolism of lipids and carbohydrates. Cirrhosis
is a condition in which the liver does not function properly due to long-term damage, caused mainly due to chronic alcoholism and chronic hepatitis B&C. These nodules protrude and make the liver surface uneven and turn it to pale brown. Proliferation of hepatocytes to form regenerative nodules is obscure. Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, hepatic encephalopathy, dilated veins in the esophagus, Cirrhosis is often preceded by hepatitis and fatty liver (steatosis), independent of the cause.
