Abstract

De novo autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), a rare disorder first described in 1998, appears in patients with liver transplants due to autoimmune and nonautoimmune etiologies. De novo AIH occurs in 2.5% to 3.4% of allografts; children seem to have a predilection for this syndrome. We have present herein a case of a liver allograft recipient who developed chronic hepatitis associated with autoimmune features outlining the clinical course, liver histology, and response to treatment.
