According to studies of the secretariat of health of So Paulo, in last the three years it increased in 78% the number of women who look treatment in the health centers. It has other surveys that strengthen the alert one: the young is early initiating the routine of excessive alcoholic consumption, what it can favor hepticas the illnesses alcoholic. The alcoholic heptica cirrhosis generally is of the type to micronodular, however into the abstinentes patients who take much time, it can be become into macronodular, when predominating the regenerative phenomena and having ceased the consumption alcohol, that is an inhibitor of cellular regeneration (BERTELLI, CONCI, 2001). In many cirrhotic patients the granule deposit is observed of hemossiderina in the hepatcitos, that can easily be placed in evidence by means of the coloration of Perls. In some the deposit is only so massive that it can induce to the diagnosis of hemocromatose (RUBIN, FARBER, 2008). In some fgados of patients with alcoholic cirrhosis intra-hepatocitrios globular inclusions of alpha-1-antitripsina are identified and if they must to fentipo Z, but to the excretor defect of the normal alpha-1-antitripsina as consequence of the proper cirrhosis.
In about 15% of the alcoholics, the necrosis to hepatocelular, fibrose and regeneration finish taking the formation of fibrosos septos that surround nodules hepatocelulares, constituting the two characteristics that define the cirrhosis (ROBBINS et al., 2005). Other injuries of the alcoholic hepatopatia, esteatose heptica and acute or persistent alcoholic hepatitis frequently are observed in conjunction with the cirrhosis. Not yet it was established if the typical alcoholic hepatitis that is, inflammatory heptica injury and acute necrosis represent a necessary precursor of the cirrhosis. However, some form of persistent necrosis causes clearly to the development of cirrhosis (RUBIN; FARBER, 2008). In accordance with Diepenbrock (2005), in the cases of established alcoholic cirrhosis, the prognostic it is, in its bigger part, considerably better for that they do not abuse the alcohol. However, many patients evolve for the hepatopatia in terminal period of training, and the alcoholic hepatopatia constitutes the only more common cause for liver transplant. 2,3 CLASSIFICATIONS OF CIRRHOSIS HEPTICA Due the inherent difficulties to any type of classification, we will present three distinct boardings, in the attempt to classify the cirrhosis, which are: morphologic, etiolgica and clinical (RUBIN; FARBER, 2008). In accordance with Brazilian Son (2006), this classification is
