Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency and liver cirrhosis in adults.

Abstract

Although cirrhosis of the liver caused by alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency is not uncommon in children, only a few cases have been described in adults. We have seen three such patients--one man and two women, ranging in age from 57 to 66 years. These cases show the wide spectrum of this genetically influenced disease.
