UpToDate, electronic clinical resource tool for physicians and patients that provides information on Adult Primary Care and Internal Medicine, Allergy and. AIH is a complex diagnosis partly because there is no anatomic criterion (i.e. ‘ gold’) standard. AIH scoring neatly solves this problem by defining the diagnosis.

AIH is multifactorial, complex, and typically has many competing diagnoses. Patients with established hepatitis and available liver biopsy results, but unclear diagnosis.

The current knowledge of de novo AIH suggests that whether and when a patient who has undergone LT for autoommune liver disease will develop de novo AIH are not predictable. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only. Smooth muscle antibody; LKM: Views Read Edit View history. Rapid withdrawal of immunosuppression is associated with high risk of disease relapse in many patients.

Maggiore, Giuseppe ; Sciveres, Marco. It is of note that in some cases, the diagnosis of de novo AIH arises from a standard autoimkune post-LT biopsy in the absence of prior major clinical or laboratory findings. De novo autoimmunity in LT is a complex clinico-pathological issue due to both the incomplete understanding of its pathogenesis and its challenging diagnostic interpretation.

What was needed was a score to help decide if a trial of immunosuppression should be undertaken. AIH is thought to have a basis in aberrant outoreactivity to hepatocyte antigens in genetically predisposed individuals.

In one case, the epztite treatment was stopped for safety issues[ 38 ]. Therefore, given the complexity of the follow-up of liver allografts, strict awareness is needed in this setting for the detection and correct interpretation of liver enzymes increase, particularly during but not limited to long-term post-LT follow-up.
