Autoimmune hepatitis in a demographically isolated area of Australia
Abstract:Background: Previous studies describing autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) come from liver transplant centres in which a skewed distribution of cases may give a misleading picture of the incidence of AIH and its natural history. This series describes AIH in a stable and demographically discrete population of patients in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and the surrounding region.
