Hepatology is an area in which research is under great pressure to meet emerging clinical challenges. The viral hepatitis epidemic has caused an influx of patients with symptomatic and asymptomatic liver disease into physicians' offices. Simultaneous developments in molecular biology have led to insights into viral pathogenesis and inherited metabolic diseases. The result has been a new era of promise in diagnosing and treating liver disease. This Update summarizes advances in hepatology over the past 2 years. I recount some important aspects of the history of viral hepatitis and hemochromatosis and describe notable new reports that may help guide an internist's approach to patients with these liver diseases.
