The dapsone hypersensitivity syndrome revisited: a potentially fatal multisystem disorder with prominent hepatopulmonary
Hepatologists and other specialists from around the world present 28 chapters on imaging, lab tests, fibrosis and fibrogenesis, pathophysiology, prognosis, and liver transplant evaluation, followed by the management of complications like hepatic encephalopathy, cirrhotic cardiomyopathy, hepatopulmonary
syndrome, ascites, acute kidney injury, and hyponatremia, as well as bleeding, malnutrition, adrenal insufficiency, coagulopathy, infections, osteopenia, and pruritis, and pediatric considerations, drug therapy and potential hepatotoxicity, and quality of life.
Patients with hepatorenal syndrome types I and II, baseline serum potassium >6 meq/l, hepatopulmonary
syndrome, portopulmonary hypertension, ejection fraction <60% and cirrhotic cardiomyopathy were excluded from study.

Variceal hemorrhage, hepatorenal syndrome and hepatopulmonary
syndrome may develop in this syndorme (10).
Other chapters address noninvasive exploration of the pulmonary circulation and the right heart; invasive hemodynamic measurements in the management of pulmonary vascular disease; portopulmonary hypertension and hepatopulmonary
syndrome; pulmonary veno-occlusive disease; acute venous thromboembolic disease; atrial septostomy; anticoagulation for venous thromboembolism; and pulmonary vascular disorders in hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia.
