Acute-on-Chronic Liver Failure (ACLF) is a critical medical condition characterised by the sudden deterioration of liver function in individuals with underlying chronic liver disease. This complex syndrome is marked by a rapid onset of severe liver dysfunction and is often associated with multiple organ failures. ACLF requires immediate medical attention and intervention, posing a high mortality risk. Effective management strategies and early detection are crucial in improving the prognosis for patients with ACLF, making it a significant focus in gastroenterology and hepatology.
