Abstract

Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH) and Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC) are important immune mediated liver diseases. They are usually differentiated based on clinical, biochemical, serological, and histological parameters. The presence of autoantibodies, clinical, and serological findings can sometimes occur in different combinations leading to overlap syndromes, which is rare. Early recognition of such overlap syndromes is clinically significant from treatment point of view. Here, we report a case of AIH-PBC overlap syndrome with a brief review of literature on overlap syndromes.
