Hello all, I'm 61 yrs old and I've had AIH for 30 yrs. I was doing well until 2 months ago I had slightly elevated AST 66 and ALT 77 also ALP 130. I had an Ultrasound an MRI (I was told I have Cirrhosis) an Endoscopy (which found no varices) and finally a Biopsy. I can't get in to see my Dr. for 18 more days. I was hoping one of you could give me some help reading this report, BTW I had no idea I might had PBC:
1. LIVER DEMONSTRATING FEATURES MOST CONSISTENT WITH AN OVERLAP
SYNDROME OF AUTOIMMUNE HEPATITIS AND PRIMARY BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.
2. FIBROSIS STAGE 3, ACTIVITY GRADE 2. SEE COMMENT.
COMMENT: The morphologic features include occasional granulomata,
biliary proliferation and onion skinning, which are more consistent
with primary biliary cirrhosis. Occasional plasma cells are also
identified, and an autoimmune component is most likely present as well.
Recommend clinical correlation as well as AMA and viral serologies.
Thanks for any help
