Acute Liver Failure

What is Acute Liver Failure?

Acute liver failure (ALF), also known as fulminant liver failure is an uncommon condition which occurs when the liver suddenly ceases to function in an otherwise healthy person. This most severe type of liver failure is life-threatening and develops in a matter of days.

ALF affects about 2000–2800 persons annually (3.5 deaths per million population) and accounts for 5-6% of liver transplants in the United States.
