Abstract

ESPINOZA HERRERA, Yeinis Paola; RESTREPO GUTIERREZ, Juan Carlos; HOYOS DUQUE, Sergio  and  CORREA ARANGO, Gonzalo. Report of two overlap syndrome cases with autoimmune hepatitis and primary biliary cirrhosis. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.4, pp.399-404. ISSN 0120-9957.

We present the cases of two female patients with clinical, serological, immunological, and histological characteristics which mixed symptoms of autoimmune hepatitis and primary biliary cirrhosis. Orthotopic liver transplantation was chosen as the best therapeutic alternative for both patients given the advanced deterioration of their disease.

Keywords : Overlap syndrome; autoimmune hepatitis; primary biliary cirrhosis; liver transplantation.
