Autoimmune Hepatitis

Autoimmune hepatitis is a long-term disease that makes the body's defenses (or immune system) attack the liver. This causes liver inflammation and damage.

Sometimes chemicals, certain medicines, or a virus can cause cells in your body to attack your liver.

Autoimmune chronic hepatitis can be treated successfully with medicine and sometimes by a liver transplant.
