In an attempt to assess the diagnostic values of serum gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) and mean corpuscular volume (MCV) variations as markers of liver disease and of abstinence in alcoholic patients, we compared 174 patients with alcoholic cirrhosis, 175 with noncirrhotic alcoholic liver disease and 67 patients with nonalcoholic cirrhosis.
