Abnormal liver function following total parenteral nutrition in a patient with short bowel syndrome

Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) is an essential means of maintaining nutrition in those who are unable to do so via an enteral route.

This article describes a case of abnormal liver function following total parenteral nutrition and discusses the methods of potentially reducing such complications.
