Core Tip The albumin-bilirubin (ALBI) score was initially proposed to evaluate liver function in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. It proposed to validate the ALBI score to assess the risk of decompensation in patients with compensated cirrhosis. We provide a comment to highlight the preliminary nature of the evidence reported by the authors. Further studies are needed to validate the ALBI score to predict decompensation in patients with cirrhosis.
