Cystic Fibrosis Liver Disease

What is Cystic Fibrosis Liver Disease?

Liver disease associated with cystic fibrosis has been increasingly diagnosed during recent years probably due to the combined effect of systematic hepatic assessment and reduced death from extra-hepatic causes of CF patients. Although the natural history of cystic fibrosis-associated liver disease suggests a benign and protracted course in most cases, it is considered a major complication of CF which may limit survival and quality of life.

Cystic Fibrosis Liver Disease is treated in the Pediatric Liver Center at Hopkins Children's.
