On a random forum, a member speculated that their cirrhosis was caused by wearing tight-fitting clothing such as a girdle or corset. This leads me to the following question:
Question: Can cirrhosis be caused by physical compression of the body?
The list of causes on Wikipedia does not include this. However, this may just be because the list is incomplete. Alternatively, it may be because physical compression is unlikely to contribute to cirrhosis.
A plausible mechanism that springs to my mind is that physical compression leads to the constriction of hepatic veins, arteries and/or their tributaries. But I suspect the rib cage would provide significant protection against this (see below).
