Most of the patients referred to a specialized hepatology center suffer from decompensation of end-stage chronic liver disease or acute-on-chronic liver failure. A subset of patients with no pre-existing illness can present as acute liver failure. The only recommended treatment of choice is liver transplantation. Hence, it is important to understand the indications for liver transplantation, types of liver transplantation and a general overview of immunosuppression.
