Although there are a multitude of causes of ALF, acetaminophen hepatotoxicity remains the most common cause in the United States.

Acute liver failure (ALF) is a dramatic but rare clinical syndrome marked by the sudden loss of hepatic function in a person with no prior history of liver disease. The causes of ALF include viral hepatitis, drug-induced and toxin-induced liver disease, metabolic errors, ischemia, and miscellaneous rare by: Acute liver failure is the appearance of severe complications rapidly after the first signs (such as jaundice) of liver disease, and indicates that the liver has sustained severe damage (loss of function of 80–90% of liver Complications: Hepatic encephalopathy, kidney.

Acute liver failure (ALF) is a complex clinical syndrome characterized by elevated liver biochemistry, coagulopathy, and hepatic encephalopathy without underlying chronic liver disease.

The most frequently used classification is the one that O'Grady and collaborators proposed which divides liver failure into 3 categories based on the interval between the development of jaundice and the onset.

Acute liver failure (ALF) in children differs from that observed in adults in both the etiologic spectrum and the clinical picture. Children, particularly very young ones, do not demonstrate.

Drug-induced acute liver failure is more than 50% in the US. Hepatitis A, B, and E another reason for the cause of acute liver failure with more than 50% death in the developing countries.

In several cases, the reason for acute liver failure remains unidentified. Acute liver failure (ALF) is a life-threatening illness, where a previously normal liver fails within days to weeks. Sudden loss of synthetic and detoxification function of liver results in jaundice, encephalopathy, coagulopathy, and multiorgan failure.

The etiology of ALF varies demographically. The mortality of ALF is as high as 40–50%.Cited by: Acute liver failure (ALF), the manifestation of severe hepatocellular injury in the absence of pre-existing liver disease is a catastrophic and frequently fatal disorder.

Etiologies vary greatly, with viral hepatitis infections and acetaminophen toxicity among the most common.

Acute hepatitis is a general diagnosis referring to any of a wide variety of conditions causing acute inflammation or injury to hepatocytes, resulting in elevation of liver biochemical lab tests.

Hepatitis is classified as acute if it resolves in less than six months, and if abnormal findings last greater than six months, it classifies as chronic hepatitis.[1][2][3] The term is common when.

Hepatitis can lead to acute liver failure. Autoimmune diseases may cause your body to attack and damage your liver cells. Health conditions, such as Wilson disease or Reye syndrome, may cause acute liver failure. Heart failure, heat stroke, and blood vessel diseases such as Budd-Chiari syndrome, can also cause acute liver failure.Acute liver failure (ALF) is a progressive life-threatening condition characterized by hepatic dysfunction with coagulopathy and hepatic encephalopathy (HE) that evolves over a few days or weeks.
