The Child-Pugh and MELD scores were calculated, systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) was systematically sought, the statistical analysis was performed by the FISHER software in uni-varied and multi-variate analysis. Results 188 patients were cirrhotic in decompensation, of which 56 presented the SIRS (30 %) the overall mortality rate was 11 % or 18 patients, 15 of them met the criteria of SIRS. SIRS patients had a high bacterial infection prevalence (p = 0.008), and a higher prevalence of jaundice (p
