    00:01 Move on to hereditary liver diseases, and the differentials that you find with hereditary liver disease include hereditary hemochromatosis, Wilson's disease, big time.

    00:13 You need to know about alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency. How come? How common might you find cystic fibrosis in the Caucasian population? Quite common.

    00:22 How often can you find Down's Syndrome in the Caucasian population? Unfortunately, quite common.

    00:28 The third most common genetic disease in the US in the Caucasian population is alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency.

    00:38 So, if you did not pay attention to it in med school, oh my goodness, pay attention to me now and I’ll walk you through.

    00:45 Remember, not only you can have alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency causing damage to the liver, but obviously, you've heard of panacinar emphysema. We've talked about that in pulmonology.
