Core Tip Acute liver failure (ALF) is a life-threatening syndrome with varying aetiologies based on geographic location. Paracetamol is the most common cause of ALF in South Eastern Australia with a rising incidence over 30 years. Despite this, transplantation for paracetamol induced ALF is lower than other large centres at 4% with a comparable overall survival. Non-paracetamol ALF however portends a poor prognosis with less than one third surviving without emergency liver transplantation.
