Liver disease in Europe

Burroughs, A. and McNamara, D. (2003),

Liver disease refers to a wide spectrum of both acute conditions caused by various injurious agents, such as viruses, toxins, alcohol and pharmacological agents, as well as chronic liver diseases, which may over time lead to cirrhosis. Cirrhosis, from whatever cause, predisposes to hepatocellular carcinoma, a primary liver cancer, particularly if the cirrhosis is caused by hepatitis B or C infection.
