Overlap Syndrome of Primary Biliary Cirrhosis and Autoimmune Hepatitis with Unusual Initial Presentation as an Acute Hepatic Failure

Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC) and Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH) may simultaneously coexist in some patients, designated as PBC-AIH overlap syndrome. Acute hepatic failure is an unusual initial form of presentation of PBCAIH overlap syndrome. We report the case of a 31 year-old woman with autoimmune PBC-AIH overlap syndrome who presented with an acute hepatic failure. She revealed a good response to corticosteroid and ursodeoxycholic acid therapy.
