Core Tip Bacterial infections (BI) affect the natural course of liver cirrhosis and can trigger decompensation or death. The most frequent BI in cirrhosis (urinary tract infections, pneumonia or spontaneous-bacterial peritonitis were retrospectively compared to infections at other body sites, which are thought to be less frequently affected (so-called “atypical BI”). When comparing typical/atypical BI, no differences in age, sex, or etiology of cirrhosis were found. Notably, for atypical BI, the stage of cirrhosis was less advanced, as expressed by laboratory parameters and clinical scores (e.g. Model of End Stage Liver Disease - and Child-Pugh-Score).
