Autoimmune hepatitis is a chronic disease in which your immune system attacks your liver. While the condition can be controlled with medication, autoimmune hepatitis that has progressed or is diagnosed at later stages can lead to liver failure. Severe autoimmune hepatitis may require advanced treatments, including a liver transplant. The hepatologists at Duke are experts in treating autoimmune hepatitis. We help you manage your condition, monitor its progression, and help you prepare for a liver transplant if it becomes necessary.
