Cutaneous changes may be the first clue that a patient has liver disease. Recognizing these signs is crucial to diagnosing liver conditions early. Here we describe the spectrum of skin manifestations that may be found in various liver diseases. If we can recognize these manifestations early, we will be better able to promptly diagnose and treat the underlying liver disease as well as the skin lesions.
