Autoimmune Liver Diseases (AILD)

  • Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH)

    Autoimmune Hepatitis (AIH) is a chronic liver disease characterised by increased serum transaminases and immunoglobulin G, circulating autoantibodies and infiltration of immune cells on liver histology. Its pathogenesis is largely unknown, but an autoimmune reaction directed against hepatocytes is assumed.…

  • (Poly-) Cystic Liver Disease (PLD)

    Polycystic liver disease (PLD) is characterized by the formation of fluid-filled cysts throughout the liver. It can occur as an isolated form in autosomal dominant polycystic liver disease (ADPLD), which was formerly abbreviated as polycystic liver disease (PCLD). It can…
