Background/Aims: Data on the epidemiology of viral and non viral cirrhosis, especially in African countries, are limited. We compared the epidemiology and clinical characteristics requiring the first hospital admission and causing in-hospital mortality between viral and non viral cirrhosis over the last two years. The identification of patients at higher risk for adverse outcomes can aid in making the clinical decisions that will improve the prognosis for these patients.
