Development of autoimmune hepatitis in patients with typical primary biliary cirrhosis



Development of autoimmune hepatitis in patients with typical primary biliary cirrhosis



Hepatology 44(1): 85-90



Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC)-autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) overlap syndrome is a clinical entity characterized by the occurence of both conditions at the same time in the same patient. In addition to PBC-AIH overlap syndrome, transitions from one autoimmune disease to another have been reported, but no systematic series have been published. We report a series of 12 patients with consecutive occurrence of PBC and AIH (i.e., PBC followed by AIH).
