Abstract

Liver failure is a severe clinical syndrome presenting with coagulation dysfunction, jaundice, hepatic encephalopathy, and ascites. It often has a dismal prognosis. The role of glucocorticoid for the treatment of liver failure is unclear. In this paper, we reported that a female patient with sub-acute liver failure had a good response to glucocorticoid.
