  Acute and acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is the consequence of acute insult of the liver on the background of underlying compensated chronic liver disease and may result from a wide variety of causes. The short-term mortality may be as high as 65% at 3 months [1]. This is the result of multi-organ failure involving both liver as well as extra hepatic organs as a consequence of bizarre systemic inflammation [2].
