Alcoholic liver disease comprises a spectrum of pathologic changes, including uncomplicated steatosis, steatohepatitis, and cirrhosis. The risk of developing steatohepatitis and cirrhosis increases with the duration and amount of alcohol consumed; genetic and other factors also influence progression to cirrhosis, which occurs in about 10% of chronic alcoholics. Diffuse parenchymal micronodularity (< 3mm), as seen here, is due to underlying fibrosis. Image Copyright: pathorama.ch.
