Caption

Inflamed liver. Gross clinical specimen of a human liver with chronic active hepatitis (autoimmune hepatitis). This condition is often associated with other diseases, such as connective tissue inflammation (lupus erythematosus). Its symptoms may be no worse than a vague feeling of being unwell. As a result, it is often only detected during a medical investigation of another condition, for example an abnormal liver function test. A positive diagnosis can only be made from a liver biopsy. Treatment is with corticosteriod drugs, which may bring some improvement, but only the treatment of related conditions, or possibly a transplant, will cure.
