Types of Cirrhosis;
• Alcoholic cirrhosis, in which the scar tissue characteristically surrounds the portal areas. Often due to chronic alcoholism, it is the most common type of cirrhosis.
• Postnecrotic cirrhosis, there are broad bands of scar tissue. This is a late result of a previous episode of acute viral hepatitis.
• Biliary cirrhosis, where scars develop in the liver around the bile ducts. This is the least common type of cirrhosis. It is secondary to chronic biliary obstruction & infection.
