The chapter on metabolic liver disease covers the metabolic disorders that affect the liver. It covers the important features in the history that may raise the suspicion of such a condition, as well as the clinical features that may be found. A detailed differential is discussed depending on the clinical presentation, for example, acute liver failure, infantile cholestasis, neonatal ascites, or acidosis and ketosis. Suggested investigations and the general management of these conditions are also included.
