Liver Disease

AUTHOR:
Joanna Odenthal
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  1. Discuss the non-specific presentations of liver disease as well as the laboratory tests that indicate liver injury.
  2. Formulate a differential diagnosis for acute hepatitis and identify the risk factors that make different etiologies more or less likely.  
  3. Compare and contrast findings in non-alcoholic and alcoholic steatohepatitis. List other etiologies of chronic liver disease including infectious and autoimmune.
  4. Discuss the etiologies and clinical findings of cirrhosis as well as the diagnostic steps needed to make a the diagnosis of cirrhosis.
  5. Recognize findings concerning for Hepatic Encephalopathy (HE). Use the pathophysiology of the disease process to explain the methods to manage HE.
  6. Develop a systematic approach to the work-up of hyperbilirubinemia.
