Antiviral agent-induced liver damage

Antiviral agent-induced liver damage: Introduction

Antiviral agent-induced liver damage: Damage or injury to the liver caused by exposure to antiviral agents. Antiviral agents are a relatively uncommon cause of liver damage.

Mild liver damage may cause few if any symptoms whereas severe damage can ultimately result in liver failure. Symptoms may be acute, subacute or chronic depending on the severity of the exposure. Factors such as age, race, gender, overall health and underlying liver problems may also influence a person's risk of developing liver problems and the severity of the symptoms. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Antiviral agent-induced liver damage is available below.
