The prevalence of liver cirrhosis (LC) in Tajikistan, the survival rate and life expectancy of patients with this disease were studied. Total of 1374 patients with LC were investigated. The main etiological factors of LC were: viruses of hepatitis B, hepatitis C and alcohol. Incidence of viral liver cirrhosis in Tajikistan is no different from that of Russia and some western countries, and of 23.2 patients per 100 000 adult population. Alcoholic CL and primary biliary cirrhosis are less common in the 10 and 5 times, respectively. Three-year life expectancy and survival depend on the degree of compensation of cirrhotic process. Three-year survival from the time of diagnosis was highest in the CL of class A: 79% versus 28% for CP class C.

Keywords: liver cirrhosis, primary biliary cirrhosis, the survival rate.
