Inflammation vs. Infection. (Regarding chronic liver patients)

Infection is the result of pathogens thriving. (Bacteria, viruses, parasites) Inflammation is the immune system's reaction to the destruction of cells in our body. The definition of inflammation is, of course, much broader than that of infection, which usually produces an inflammatory response.

Take, for example, the chronic viral inflammation of the liver. The infection in the liver is caused by a pathogen, which creates inflammation and destruction of liver cells that often continues even after the pathogen is inactive. In chronic liver patients, due to drinking alcoholic beverages, liver inflammation occurs without pathogens. The result is almost the same.
