Pregnancy and autoimmune hepatitis

Misael Uribe, Norberto C. Chávez Tapia, Nahum Méndez-Sánchez

Abstract

Autoimmune hepatitis is a rare condition that is more common among women than men. An association between pregnancy and autoimmune hepatitis is rare. This clinical scenario requires the gastroenterologist and hepatologist to have a profound knowledge of clinical course counseling and medical management. The prognosis in well-controlled and closely monitored patients is good. In this review, we discuss the most important aspects of autoimmune hepatitis and pregnancy as part of the Symposium on Liver and Pregnancy, co-sponsored by the Mexican Association of Hepatology and the Mexican Association of Gynecologists and Obstetrics.

Key words. Autoimmune hepatitis, pregnancy, fetal outcomes
