What is Autoimmune Hepatitis?

Description of the disease

Autoimmune hepatitis is a chronic inflammatory liver disease caused by the body's immune response to its own liver cells. As a result of this inflammation, the liver is gradually destroyed, which can lead to serious complications such as cirrhosis or liver failure.


  • Autoimmune hepatitis type 1
  • Autoimmune hepatitis type 2
  • Autoimmune hepatitis type 3


  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal pain
  • Dark urine
  • Joint pain
  • Weight loss


The causes of autoimmune hepatitis are unknown, but it is believed that genetic factors and exposure to external environmental agents may play a role in the development of the disease.


Tests for antibodies to liver cells and immunoglobulin G, liver biopsy, ultrasound and CT of the liver are used to diagnose autoimmune hepatitis.


Treatment of autoimmune hepatitis includes the use of immunosuppressive drugs such as steroids and azathioprine, as well as dietary correction and work and rest regimen.


There are no specific methods for preventing autoimmune hepatitis, but a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition can help maintain liver health.


Autoimmune hepatitis is treated by a gastroenterologist or hepatologist.
