Abstract

Management of ALF challenges our best skills as physicians and intensivists. Treatments for specific etiologies and consideration of transplantation should be undertaken urgently in all patients that demonstrate evidence of encephalopathy. Because patients may deteriorate rapidly, arranging care in a center with experience and expertise in managing patients with ALF will secure the best possible outcomes for these patients.
