Liver disease encompasses a wide range of diseases that vary in severity, from mild injury to severe liver fibrosis and scarring (cirrhosis). There are a number of pathways to liver injury, many of which lead to cirrhosis, which is late-stage liver disease. Cirrhosis most typically develops as a consequence of chronic liver inflammation (hepatitis). Causes of hepatitis include infections (viral hepatitis B or C), alcohol and fatty liver disease (steatohepatitis).
