    I'd like to have a range of pictures showing the degression of the liver due to alcohol abuse.

    I have been looking in vain so far. Please post here if you can find it.

    The stages of Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD) are as follows:

    1) Fatty liver

    The green image shows how liver looks under the microscope: See all the fat globules?

    2) Alcoholic Hepatitis (Inflammation). Unfortunately I can't find any decent images for this one

    3)Alcoholic Cirrhosis

    The first image shows alcoholic cirrhosis (top) compared to cirrhosis due to chronic viral hepatitis. The second image shows a cirrhotic liver under the microscope: Fibrous tissue and completely distorted liver architecture.

    Below is an image of ascites (collection of intraabdominal free fluid and jaundice, associated with advance alcoholic liver disease
