In brief: Many things ...

There are many causes of liver inflammation - hepatitis viruses, fatty liver, alcohol, genetic diseases, autoimmune diseases - to name some of them. If your liver enzymes are elevated, the cause should be determined.
Longstanding liver injury can sometimes lead to cirrhosis.
