The day has not arrived when predictive value of liver disease can be given like many laboratory tests. Autopsy studies provide us with useful baseline data to start a step towards achieving good morphological accuracy. The present study compromised of 118 cases of cirrhosis detected from the period January 2008 to December 2013. 3960 autopsies done during this period were scrutinized and 824 cases had liver pathology. Out of the 824 cases 118 had cirrhosis as the liver pathology, which makes incidence of cirrhosis at autopsy as 14.3% of all liver pathology, which shows a decreasing incidence of cirrhosis which may be due decrease in autopsy rate over the years, the reasons for the continuing decline are complex and include attitudes toward autopsies of hospital administrative staff, medical staff, and family members and also because of increase in diagnosis by liver biopsy and introduction of antifibrotic therapy.
