Answer

Additional evaluations may include testing for infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), screening for susceptibility to hepatitis A and hepatitis B virus infections, and for other underlying causes of liver disease (eg, autoimmune liver disease, hemochromatosis, Wilson disease, α1-antitrypsin deficiency).
