Well.... I am no Dr and No Doctors here.
In my laymen opinion, could be autoimmune Hepatitis. But this is just a guess, at best. I could be all wrong.
Its confusing for autoimmune that your ANA was normal before TX. Maybe you developed it during TX ? Did your BX show any autoimmune hep ?
You need your Dr to figure this out. Or get a second opinion from another Dr.

What genotype are you. And how long is your tx suppose to be.
If you are a geno 2 or 3 then 12 wks tx might be enough since you had a RVR.
Have you done your 12th shot of ifn ?
Be very careful here, 904 ALT is very high. Do you have jaundice now ? Don't think you want to chance going into the thousands.

Have you got your ANA and smooth muscle antibody checked again ?
What has your Dr recommended ?
IMO, You need to be watched very carefully now by a Hepatologist or at the very least a good gastro.
