Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is progressive, chronic immunologically mediated inflammatory liver disorder that occurs in children and adults of all ages, predominantly in women. AIH can be combined with other autoimmune and non-autoimmune conditions. We present a case of a 32 year-old female with three relatively uncommon diseases - two autoimmune diseases and one inherited, making their combination even more rare.
