Abstract Share this page

Abstract Autoimmune hepatitis also known as Lupoid hepatitis is an autoimmune liver disease characterized by the presence of autoantibodies including antinuclear antibodies (ANA) and hyper gammaglobulinemia. SLE can be associated with hepatitis, which is referred to as lupus hepatitis. It is important to distinguish these two entities, as the course of the disease is different in both. It has also been noted that these two entities can co-exist when it is referred to as Autoimmune hepatitis--SLE overlap syndrome. We are reporting a case of Autoimmune hepatitis--SLE overlap syndrome in a 30 years old lady.
