Description Incidence of bacterial infection in hospitalised patients with liver disease is high. Due to a liver dysfunction immune reactivity is significantly imparied and bacterial infections are more frequent. Also incidence of nosocomial infections is higher in patients with liver disease compared to patients hospitalised for other conditions. To make a differential diagnosis of infectious and non-infectious aetiology of an inflammation is very difficult. Characteristic laboratory test for bacterial infection include test of number of leucocytes in peripheral blood, diferencial count of leucocytes, erythrocyte sedimentation, procalcitonin, C-reactive protein, tumor necrosis factor alpha, interleukin-1, interleukin-6, interleukin-8 and complement fragment C3a. Clinicaly the most significant are C-reactive protein test and procalcitonin test.
