Yes, I was found to have this about 18 months ago - shown on initial ultrasound, then they put me in for a CT scan. The more detailed look seemed to reassure drs that it was 'only' due to AI stuff, nothing else. I am reassured too!! Enlarged nodes are really just a way in which our bodies respond to inflammation somewhere. I have a rare variant of PBC - it's called autoimmune cholangiopathy - sort of like AIH and AMA neg PBC together. I am responding to steroids and immunosuppressants. I still have wonky LFTs but they are closer to normal.


Thanks for replying Witchiegirl.the more I read the more confused I become over different variants of pbc.i trust you don't have too many problems with it or rather I hope not.
