1. Fulminant presentation of autoimmune hepatitis: clinical features and early predictors of corticosteroid treatment failure.

    European Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepato... 27(6):644 (2015) PMID 25923939

    Classical features of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) may be altered during the abrupt onset of the disease. Corticosteroid therapy can be life-saving, but its use in the fulminant presentation of AIH (F-AIH) remains controversial. We aimed to assess the clinical features of patients with F-AIH and t...
