Ans: B
Feedback:
Alcoholic hepatitis is the intermediate stage between fatty changes and cirrhosis and is characterized by inflammation and necrosis of liver cells. The condition is always serious and sometimes fatal. The cardinal sign of alcoholic hepatitis is rapid onset of jaundice. Hand tremors are not specific to alcoholic hepatitis. Long muscle group atrophy can occur but is not the primary sign. Development of nodules is not caused by alcoholic hepatitis.
