This chapter will briefly highlight important issues regarding the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical features of acute and chronic liver disease. A rational approach to the interpretation of liver function serologies will be outlined. Specific presentations of hepatobiliary disease will be reviewed, including jaundice, cirrhosis, and complications of end-stage liver disease (ESLD), gallbladder and biliary tract disease, and vascular liver disease. Content will be limited primarily to immediate diagnostic and therapeutic concerns, avoiding discussion of the science of hepatopathology so as to focus on issues most pertinent to the practice of emergency medicine.
