Recently we have been studying the liver at school and came upon this condition called autoimmune hepatitis. It is when your body attacks your liver cells. Our professor told us it usually occurs in peole with other autoimmune conditions such as hashimotos's thyroiditis and juvenile diabetes. Has anyone experienced this with their child or ever heard of it? The autoantibodies are ANA (antinuclear), SMA (smooth muscle antibody), and anti-LKM1. They also see it associated with the haplotype HLA DR4, which I believe is also associated with type 1. Thanks!
