Abstract

Although the etiology of AIH, PBC, and PSC remains unknown, it is apparent that these autoimmune liver diseases share many common features and can coexist in the same patient. Our patient had features of PBC and later clearly developed a picture of PSC. This case suggests that PBC, PSC, AIH, and autoimmune cholangitis are part of a spectrum of chronic autoimmune liver disease that develop in response to some yet unidentified antigen.
