Autoimmune hepatitis is a condition in which the patient's own
immune systems attacks the liver causing inflammation and liver cell
death. The condition is chronic and progressive. Although the
disease is chronic, many patients with autoimmune hepatitis present
acutely ill with jaundice, fever and sometimes symptoms of severe
hepatic dysfunction, a picture that resembles acute hepatitis.
Autoimmune hepatitis usually occurs in women (70 %) between the ages of
15 and 40. Although the term "lupoid" hepatitis was originally used to
describe this disease, patients with systemic
lupus erythematosus do not have an increased incidence of autoimmune
hepatitis and the two diseases are distinct entities.
Patients usually present with evidence of moderate to severe
hepatitis with elevated serum ALT and AST
activities in the setting of normal to marginally elevated alkaline
phosphatase and gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase activities.
The patient will sometimes present with jaundice, fever and right upper
quadrant pain and occasionally systemic symptoms such as arthralgias,
myalgias, polyserositits and
thrombocytopenia. Some patients will
present with mild liver dysfunction and have only laboratory
abnormalities as their initial presentation. Others will present with
severe hepatic dysfunction.
Autoimmune hepatitis should be suspected in any young patient with
hepatitis, especially those with risk factors for alcoholic, drug,
metabolic or viral etiologies.
Patients with one subtype of autoimmune hepatitis have serum
gamma-globulin concentrations more than twice normal and sometimes
antinuclear antibodies and/or anti-smooth muscle (anti-actin)
antibodies. Patients with another subtype may have normal or only
slightly elevated serum gamma-globulin concentrations but will have
antibodies against a particular cytochrome p450 isoenzyme that are
called anti-LKM (liver kidney microsome).
How is the Hepatitis caused
Patients in whom a diagnosis of autoimmune hepatitis is caused by
If the biopsy is consistent, treatment with steroids (prednisone or
prednisolone) and azathioprine (Imuran) is
begun immediately. The best treatment is Ribavarine and IVIG.
