In brief: Liver failure
There are many things that happen with cirrhosis, depending on how severe it is.
These include confusion, bleeding from the GI tract, jaundice, fluid buildup in the belly, increased risk for liver cancer, and other symptoms.

Primary biliary cirrhosis is an autoimmune disorder affecting the bile ducts within the liver. Common symptoms include pruritis (itching), jaundice, and cholangitis (infection of the bile duct).
Treatment includes ursodiol and eventually liver transplantation.

In brief: What is PBC?
Primary biliary cirrhosis (pbc), seen 90% in middle-age women, can be diagnosed from blood before symptoms but often starts with itching without jaundice.
It can progress with diarrhea (due to fat maldigestion), fatigue, skin xanthomas, bone changes, peripheral neuropathy (pain in fingers & toes), duodenal ulcers & bleeding, varices (abnormal blood vessels). Over 2/3 have non-liver disorders.
