We report the case of a girl affected by giant cell hepatitis associated with autoimmune haemolytic anaemia. Both conditions were severe with a number of life-threatening episodes of liver failure and anaemia unresponsive to several immunosuppressant drugs but cyclophosphamide. After a low-dose long-term treatment with this drug the patient is stably well without any therapy. A review of therapeutical options in this condition is also presented.

Giant cell hepatitis (CGH) with autoimmune haemolytic anaemia (AHA) is a distinct entity with an aggressive course. Immunosuppression may help early disease. A case is reported of a child with GCH and AHA with early disease recurrence after liver transplantation for end stage liver disease.

An 8-month-old boy and a 7-month-old girl presented with an acute, Coombs-positive auto-immune haemolytic anaemia and severe hepatitis. The clinical manifestations were pallor, jaundice and hepatomegaly. The liver histology revealed diffuse giant cell transformation and extensive necrosis with central-portal bridging. Combined immunosuppressive regimen with steroids and azathioprine led to prolonged clinical and biological remission with a respective 2 years and 7 months follow up. The girl, however, after 7 months developed a progressive encephalopathy of unknown aetiology, while liver and haematological disease were still under control...

A Coombs-positive haemolytic anaemia with proof of heat autoagglutinins and autoantibodies against cell nuclei was diagnosed in a girl, now 7 1/2 years of age, in the sixth month of her life as a sequel to jaundice. Shortly afterwards liver biopsy yielded a confirmed diagnosis of giant cell hepatitis. The signs of the disease receded under treatment with decortin and imurek. An attempt to discontinue the medication at 5 1/2 years of age resulted in a histologically confirmed recurrence of autoimmune hepatitis...
