- (pathology) A chronic disease of the liver caused by damage from toxins (including alcohol), metabolic problems, hepatitis or nutritional deprivation. It is characterised by an increase of fibrous tissue and the destruction of liver cells.
- The Nuttall Encyclopedia
||Cir*rho"sis (?), n. [NL., fr. Gr.
&?; orange-colored: cf. F. cirrhose. So called from the
yellowish appearance which the diseased liver often presents when
cut.] (Med.) A disease of the liver in which it
usually becomes smaller in size and more dense and fibrous in
consistence; hence sometimes applied to similar changes in other
organs, caused by increase in the fibrous framework and decrease
in the proper substance of the organ.
- Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (1913)
