Liver in human body with inflammatory and cirrhotic processes
Front view of the human liver (hepar), showing the side of the right hepatic lobe that is facing towards the diaphragm, covered by the coronary ligament, and the left lobe, covered by the triangular ligament. The falciform ligament is between the two lobes. The gall bladder (vesica biliaris/fellea, green) is shown as well. This liver has a so-called cirrhosis, where the physiological liver parenchyma, which consists of specific hepatocytes, is increasingly being replaced by connective tissue due to former massive inflammatory processes (image: purulence yellow, inflammation red).
