Abstract

An effort has been made to present a panoramic view of cirrhosis. It has been indicated that many agents may initiate an intrahepatic process which may progress to advanced cirrhosis, that the characteristic abnormalities may cause both functional and pathologic multi-system changes, and that these encompass almost every body structure. As the altered structural and physiological changes progress, hepatic decompensation develops, and this often is terminal.
