Chronic hepatitis

Chronic hepatitis usually takes a silent course and causes inflammation of the liver without presenting any serious symptoms.

Whatever the cause of the hepatitis, serious inflammation may overwhelm the capacity of a patient's liver to regenerate. When that happens, scars may appear (known as fibrosis). Where a patient has numerous scars on their liver, this is known as hepatic cirrhosis. Not all cases of hepatic cirrhosis are caused by alcohol abuse.
