    Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection has been associated with autoimmunity and extrahepatic manifestations in adults. Few data are available on these topics in children. Nonorgan specific auto-antibodies development is part of the natural course of chronic hepatitis C in children. Smooth muscle...

    The article discusses the laboratory tests that are required in diagnosing autoimmune hepatitis. When a doctor suspects that his patient has autoimmune hepatitis, his next laboratory investigations should be assays for smooth muscle antibodies and liver/kidney microsome Type I antibodies. The...

    Background and objectives: The frequency of Type 1 diabetes (T1D)-related autoantibodies was determined in children with autoimmune hepatitis. However, the incidence of autoimmune hepatitis related autoantibodies in children with T1D has been poorly investigated. The aim of the present cross...

    Liver disorders with a likely autoimmune pathogenesis in childhood include autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), autoimmune sclerosing cholangitis (ASC), and de novo AIH after liver transplantation. AIH is divided into two subtypes according to seropositivity for smooth muscle and/or antinuclear antibody...

    For over 20 years autoimmune hepatitis has been classified into types 1 and 2, an autoantibody-based classification that has stood the test of time. In type 1 autoimmune hepatitis, the main circulating autoantibodies, although not specific for the disease, are antinuclear antibodies,...
