I'm assuming you mean Cystic fibrosis.

There is a huge difference between Cirrhosis, which is a disease of the liver, and Cystic Fibrosis.

In-depth definitions are given in the links below... hope you find this useful.

And I'll assume you are asking is there any difference between Liver Fibrosis and Cirrhosis?
The basic answer is no. Fibrosis is the laying down of fibrous connective tissue or scar tissue. Cirrhosis just refers to Fibrosis of the Liver (scarring) and the appearance of nodules on the Liver surface which is tissue attempting to regenerate.
