In brief: Autoantibody &
Biopsy. In addition to abnormal blood tests due to malfunction of liver, patients with primary biliary cirrhosis have peculiar autoantibodies, anti-mitochondrial antibodies.
Blood tests and imaging suggest cirrhosis, confirmation requires biopsy (usually needle biopsy) and examination of the tissue by a pathologist.
