Abstract

Background: Fulminant hepatic failure (FHF) may be a rare presentation of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) in previously asymptomatic adolescents. Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic immune disease that may be associated with severe forms of liver disease and coexists with AIH. We report a patient presenting with an FHF at the diagnosis of AIH and CD.
