remicade can definitely cause AIH. I would have the liver biopsy read by an expert liver pathologist to make sure that it is nothing else
Thank you for your input. The Hepatologist said she has level 3 scarring, just short of cirrhosis. What does this mean for her? Is this reversible?
fibrosis from autoimmune hepatitis is well known to improve over time with adequate medical treatment
The liver docs she is seeing at childrens hosp. said they are convinced its autoimune, not related to remacaide. The rheumatologist is holding the infusions. I sense she isnt convinced. Its hard because the drs are amazing at this hospital. Just want to hear another opinion. Sometimes they arent so perfect.
i agree with stopping the remicade for now. It is known to induce an autoimmune hepatitis
