shouldn't this be a stub? --Steven Fruitsmaak 16:46, 2 May 2006 (UTC)
- I think it should be deleted. Fulminant liver failure = acute liver failure is not at all the same as chronic liver failure. The article is completely mixed up in management and needs an entire rewrite. It's on my list of things to do. -- Samir धर्म 06:54, 15 September 2006 (UTC)
I have more of a questiong than a responce I was wandering how many acetominophen would one person have to consum in a twenty four hour period to cause acute liver failure, the reason that I am asking is my younger sister died at the age of 26 due to acute liver failure and it was not something that she was even aware that she had. She had went into the hospital with the flu so she thought. She was admitted with a high grade fever. So inturn that start giving her a acetominaphen to bring down her fever that did not work so that tried and asprin. Three days later that called the family in and had told us that her liver was failing due to acetominphen toxicity. I was wander how much does one person have to comsume for that two happen. So if anyone reads this and know the answer please e-mail your responce to firstname.lastname@example.org —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:58, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
Fully agree with Samir's assessment. Will be fleshing this out when cirrhosis looks better.
PMID 16980011 - MELD has an excessive false-positive rate when using it to screen candidates for OLT.
Desperately need some images especially to illustrate pathological changes. Only free image I could find was this Marburgh infection which do not show all findings.--Countincr ( T@lk ) 03:21, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
