Description

Hepatorenal Syndrome is a often fatal condition associated with either end stage liver disease or acute fulminant hepatic failure. While it is frequently associated with alcoholic liver disease, it is increasingly seen with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) related to obesity. Common precipitating factors are spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, volume depletion from GI or other causes.
