Liver failure: Cirrhosis is classical, such as jaundice, large belly filled with fluid, etc. But, from the perspective of a neurologist, tremors , incoordination, gait imbalance, numbness, weakness, confusion, disorientation, epileptic seizures. Of course, coma, delirium. Sudden death. Not a pretty picture.
