Accute Liver Faliure Caused By TB Drugs.
The most common causes of chronic liver failure (where the liver fails over months to years) include:
Long term alcohol consumption
Hemochromatosis (an inherited disorder that causes the body to absorb and store too much iron)
The causes of acute liver failure, when the liver fails rapidly, however, are often different. These include:
Acetaminophen (Tylenol) overdose.
Viruses including hepatitis A, B, and C (especially in children).
Reactions to certain prescription and herbal medications.
Ingestion of poisonous wild mushrooms.
