Abstract

In the past, some clinical evidence has been presented of disturbed liver function in patients with phosphorous depletion (PD) and hypophosphatemia. Frank and Kern (1) reported deterioration of hepatic function in a cirrhotic patient coincident with the development of hypophosphatenia. Furthermore, Rajan et al. (2) emphasized that hypophosphatemic patients with cirrhosis tend to undergo greater hepatic decompensation than do patients with normal blood phosphorous.
