Summary of "Hepatitis E-induced acute-on-chronic liver failure and VI nerve paralysis."

A 65-year-old patient with long-term metabolic syndrome and no relevant alcohol consumption was admitted to the hospital due to jaundice. His electronic record revealed a first suspicion of NAFLD 3 months ago because of slight alterations of LFT (AST 80 IU/L). Actual testing showed an important worsening of all LFT (AST 639 IU/L, ALT 456 IU/L, AP 248 IU/L, GGT 293 IU/L) with TB 23 mg/dl and an INR 1.22. This article is protected by copyright.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.

A form of rapid-onset LIVER FAILURE, also known as fulminant hepatic failure, caused by severe liver injury or massive loss of HEPATOCYTES. It is characterized by sudden development of liver dysfunction and JAUNDICE. Acute liver failure may progress to exhibit cerebral dysfunction even HEPATIC COMA depending on the etiology that includes hepatic ISCHEMIA, drug toxicity, malignant infiltration, and viral hepatitis such as post-transfusion HEPATITIS B and HEPATITIS C.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans that is caused by HEPATITIS C VIRUS lasting six months or more. Chronic hepatitis C can lead to LIVER CIRRHOSIS.

A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.

A spectrum of clinical liver diseases ranging from mild biochemical abnormalities to ACUTE LIVER FAILURE, caused by drugs, drug metabolites, and chemicals from the environment.
