Autoimmune HEPATITIS (AIH) is one of causes of chronic liver diseases. It is an unresolving inflammation of liver tissue and characterized by elevated transaminases, hypergammaglobulinemia, and circulating autoantibodies. The disorder occurs mostly in females (F:M ratio is 3.6 to 1) and is a relatively uncommon disorder with point prevalence of 8-16.8 per 100 000 population in western countries. Hiostologic hallmarks are interface HEPATITIS (also called piecemeal necrosis), and portallymphoplasmacytic infiltration.Dignostic criteria are based on excluding other etiologies of chronic liver disease,such as viral hepatic (A, B, C), metabolic disorders eg Wilson disese,drug induced HEPATITIS and alcoholic liver disease. Conventional autoantibodies are Antinuclear antibody (ANA), Smooth muscle antibody (SMA) and Anti liver kidney microsomal 1 (Anti LKM1).Some cases have combined clinical, laboratory or histologic features of Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC) or Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) with AIH and are known as overlap syndrome. Standard treatments of AIH as the most successful treated form of chronic HEPATITIS are based on immunosuppression with corticosteroids alone or in combination with azathioprine.
