Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH) or SLE Associated Hepatitis?

July 29, 2018

 

A physician specialized in Hepatology and Internal Medicine presented a 22 year old patient case on G-Med. With a family history of SLE and fatal fulminant autoimmune hepatitis, the patient was admitted for jaundice, arthralgia and general weakness.

 

Following a thorough examination, the physician reported his patient with jaundice, tender hepatomegaly, and left ankle arthritis, but no stigmata of chronic liver disease.

 

What type of hepatitis does the patient suffer from? What would you classify it under?
