This article outlines the majority of the adverse physical effects that have been described secondary to the consumption of alcohol at levels above recommended sensible limits. These conditions are cited according to the organ system they belong to. Only brief descriptions are provided because of the vastness of this topic. The underlying pathophysiology of tolerance and withdrawal is touched upon as this is of relevance to the psychiatrist. Definitions of the terms used describing alcohol misuse, and sensible upper limits of alcohol consumption are also mentioned.
