3. Hepatic-intestinal toxemia.
4. Simple hepatic cirrhosis.
5. Pigmented cirrhosis with anthracosis.
6. Cirrhosis with hemochromatosis.
7. Kinnear-Wilson cirrhosis.
8. So-called Banti's disease.
9. So-called Tropical Liver.
10. Cancer of the liver.
11. Syphilis of the liver (relatively common).
12. Tuberculosis of the liver (comparatively rare).
13. Hydatid cysts (dog disease) and other cysts.
14. Distomiasis or liver fluke (sheep or fish disease).
15. Trematode or other parasitic disease.
16. Amebic abscess.
17. Various bacterial abscesses.
