Alcoholic liver disease is caused by long-term consumption of risky amounts of alcohol, which have a toxic effect on liver cells. In the pathogenesis, the most important role is played by the daily intake of alcohol and the length of the alcoholic period, but genetic predisposition, immune hyperreactivity, primary and secondary deficit of nutrients, stimulation of the development of fibrous tissue and the effect of alcohol on regenerative processes in the liver cannot be excluded either. Cirrhosis is a chronic liver disease characterized by damage to liver tissue, formation of fibrous scars and progressive deterioration of liver function, accumulation of fluid in the abdomen, bleeding, increased pressure in portal blood vessels and disruption of certain brain functions.
