Abstract / Description of output

In this chapter, we provide practical information and guidance to those managing liver disease or abnormal liver function tests in a dermatology setting. Key medications that are commonly used in dermatology and can impact the liver are highlighted, alongside guidance on when to investigate further. We discuss several hepatology conditions that may present with skin changes, alongside liver diseases associated with dermatological disease. Finally, we conclude with practical guidance on how to investigate incidental findings of abnormal liver function tests in a dermatology clinic.
