Inherited Liver Diseases
Inherited Liver Diseases are genetically transferred from ancestors to the parents, grandchildren. The most important and chronic hereditary liver diseases vary from person to the person. Over time, damage to the liver results in scarring (cirrhosis), this can lead to liver failure, a life-threatening condition. Now a day’s scientists are telling that liver cancer is also a hereditary disease. Important inherited disorders causing acute and chronic liver diseases include hemochromatosis, Wilson's disease, alpha 1-antiprotease and cystic fibrosis. Alpha 1-antiprotease is due to deficiency of antitrypsin.
