Forty six cases of chronic liver disorders with and without cutaneous manifestations were studied for abnormalities of liver function tests. 27 cases were associated with cutaneous manifestations and 19 cases without cutaneous manifestations. A higher serum bilirubin level was seen in all cases with cutaneous manifestations. Serum bilirubin was significantly high (P<0.05) in patients of chronic active hepatitis with cutaneous manifestations. Serum alkaline phosphatase and serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) levels were significantly high in chronic active hepatitis and alcoholic liver disease without cutaneous manifestations respectively.
