Liver Disease in Alcoholism

  • Lawrence Feinman
  • Charles S. Lieber


The association between alcoholism and liver disease has been well recognized for the last century and is now unquestioned (Jolliffe and Jellinek, 1941; Terris, 1967). Currently it is believed that three expressions of alcoholic liver disease can be delineated by clinical and pathological criteria—alcoholic fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis, and alcoholic cirrhosis—and that this classification facilitates clinical management and perhaps furthers our appreciation of pathogenesis. Students of liver disease have tried to discern the elements associated with alcoholism responsible for these pathological entities.
