Is cirrhosis related to pernicious anemia?

No it is not! Unless it is primary biliary cirrhosis, or autoimmune hepatitis. They are associated with true pernicious anemia. Alcoholic cirrhosis is not!
Not directly. Pernicious anemia is an autoimmune disease in people who are genetically predisposed to produce an antibody to intrinsic factor, a substance in our stomachs and intestines which help us absorb vitamin b12. This results in anemia as well as neurological and psychiatric symptoms. Cirrhosis is caused by liver toxins like alcohol or hepatitis b/c, and also can be autoimmune. Some get both diseases.
