Summaries for Hepatic Encephalopathy

About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:42 Hepatic encephalopathy is a syndrome observed in some patients with cirrhosis. it is defined as a spectrum of neuropsychiatric abnormalities in patients with liver dysfunction, when other known brain disease has been excluded. signs and symptoms may be debilitating, and they can begin mildly and gradually, or occur suddenly and severely. they may include personality or mood changes, intellectual impairment, abnormal movements, a depressed level of consciousness, and other symptoms. there are several theories regarding the exact cause, but development of the condition is probably at least partially due to the effect of substances that are toxic to nerve tissue (neurotoxic), which are typically present with liver damage and/or liver disease. treatment depends upon the severity of mental status changes and upon the certainty of the diagnosis. last updated: 1/24/2011

MalaCards based summary: Hepatic Encephalopathy, also known as portal-systemic encephalopathy, is related to brain edema and liver cirrhosis. An important gene associated with Hepatic Encephalopathy is TSPO (translocator protein (18kDa)), and among its related pathways are Neurotransmitter Release Cycle and Alanine, aspartate and glutamate metabolism. The drugs lactulose and kanamycin sulfate and the compounds lazabemide and pyrazoline have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, brain and skeletal muscle, and related mouse phenotype behavior/neurological.
