- macronodular cirrhosis
- cirrhosis in which regenerative nodules are more than 3 mm in diameter, seen most often following subacute hepatic necrosis due to toxic or viral hepatitis. The reticulin framework of normal lobules collapses and may be replaced by broad bands of fibrous tissue separating regenerative nodules of various sizes. Called also multilobular c., periportal c., postnecrotic c., and toxic c.
