Autoimmune hepatitis triggered by COVID-19

64-65

Cristina Montón Rodríguez, Pablo Navarro Cortés, Paloma Lluch García, Miguel Mínguez Pérez,

We present the case of a 60-year-old female with no drug allergies or toxic habits, with hypothyroidism, and receiving treatment with levothyroxine. She was admitted in February 2021 and presented with choluria of 72 hours duration; there were no abdominal or respiratory clinical symptoms, and no related fever. Medical examination findings included mucocutaneous jaundice and a recorded oxygen saturation of 97 % in ambient air. There was a notable pattern of cytolysis compatible with acute hepatitis, and no history hepatotoxic drugs. Screening was performed for acute hepatitis in addition to serology testing, determination of autoantibodies and immunoglobulins, a PCR test for COVID, and a radiologic study.
