Alcoholic Hepatitis: A Clinician's Guide

Gina Choi et al. Clin Liver Dis.

Abstract

Alcoholic hepatitis is a frequent reason for admission and a common consultation request for hepatologists and gastroenterologists. Although it seems to occur acutely, it is usually subacute and often superimposed on underlying alcoholic cirrhosis. Typically patients have a background of drinking on a daily basis, but, in response to a life crisis, patients have started drinking massively.
