Alcoholic liver disease may progress to fatty liver, hepaticsteatosis, Alcoholic hepatitis, alcoholic steatonecrosis,fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Complications of Alcoholic hepatitis include [[variceal hemorrhage,hepatic encephalopathy,ascites,Coagulopathy, thrombocytopenia,spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, and iron overload. Different scoring systems were presented to predict the prognosis and mortality among patients with Alcoholic hepatitis. The most recent and accurate one is called Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) score.
