Data was collected for socio-demographic characteristics, determination of the degree of severity of liver disease by Child-Pugh score, laboratory investigations and nutritional assessment by using SGA score. Highest percent of patients (61.6 %) with hepatic cirrhosis had mild/moderate malnutrition, and 45.6 % had severe liver disease by Child-Pugh score and the highest percent of patients had anemia, low total lymphocytic count, and low albumin, high bilirubin and prolonged prothrombin time were detected in patients.
