Liver disease also called as Hepatic disease is a damage to the liver. Liver disease can occur through several mechanisms. The common form of liver disease is viral infection. High consumption of alcohol leads to several forms of liver diseases such as alcoholic hepatitis, alcoholic fatty liver disease, cirrhosis and liver cancer. Disease progression can lead to liver inflammation from the excess fat in the liver. Scarring in the liver often occurs as the body attempts to heal and extensive scarring can lead to the development of cirrhosis. Approximately 3-10% of individuals with cirrhosis develop a form of liver cancer known as hepatocellular carcinoma.

Scope and Importance:
Treatment of Hepatitis is on the cutting edge of medicine. Hepatitis B virus infection (HBV) has been recognized as a major health problem worldwide and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is the most common chronic blood borne infection in the United States. Viral hepatitis treatment depends on how active the virus is in your body. Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of hepatitis worldwide. Other causes of non-viral hepatitis include alcoholic hepatitis and autoimmune hepatitis.
Liver disease might be inherited (hereditary) or created by an assortment of variables that harm the liver, for example, infections and liquor utilization. Heftiness is additionally connected with liver harm. About whether, harm to the liver brings about scarring (cirrhosis), this can prompt liver disappointment, a life-undermining condition. There are numerous sorts of liver maladies. Infections cause some of them, in the same way as hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
More than 2 000 million people alive today have been infected with HBV at some time in their lives. Of these, about 350 million remain infected chronically and become carriers of the virus. Three quarters of the world’s population live in areas where there are high levels of infection. Every year there are over 4 million acute clinical cases of HBV, and about 25% of carriers, 1 million people a year, die from chronic active hepatitis, cirrhosis or primary liver cancer. High endemicity areas include sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, the central Asian Republics, and some countries in eastern Europe. In these areas, about 70 to 90% of the population becomes HBV-infected before the age of 40, and 8 to 20% of people are HBV carriers. In countries such as China, Senegal, and Thailand, infection rates are very high in infants, and continue through early childhood. At that stage the prevalence of HBsAg in serum may exceed 25%. HBV is well studied in Saudi Arabia where the prevalence in the general population is 4.25%. The genotype of the virus D predominates in the Middle East. The highest prevalence (17.5%) of HCV in the world was reported in Egypt. The pooled prevalence of HCV in haemodialysis patients is 16% in Iran, 56% in Saudi Arabia, 52% in Syria, and 34% in Sudan.
