Özet

The values of C-reactive protein (CRP) can prove useful in determining disease progress. Because of synthesis by the liver, production of CRP in response to inflammation may be attenuated in patients with liver dysfunction. This may result in differences interpreting CRP levels in patient with portal and non-portal hypertension ascites.
