Abstract

This article has summarized the liver-lung relationships from a clinical perspective. The physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology that link the two organs are of great importance in that many disorders described affect young patients. Indeed, pulmonary abnormalities in patients with hepatic disorders are frequent, and both the pulmonary and hepatic problems may be reversible in the current era of organ transplantation.
