Purpose In population based studies, the rise of HCV infection has surpassed alcoholic liver disease (ALD) as the most common cause of chronic liver disease. However, it is unknown if HCV is becoming the dominant cause of advanced liver disease. The aim of this study was to determine the distribution of etiologies in a cohort of patients presenting with advanced liver disease.
