The interpretation of the liver histology is more complex for de novo AIH than for primary AIH because the former may be affected epaite conditions that resemble autoimmune liver injury and that by definition do not affect native livers, such as acute and chronic rejection[ 1 ].
The mechanisms that are thought to contribute to the genesis of liver graft autoimmunity are at least autiommune part induced by immunosuppressive agents[ 8 ].

In the past decades, the monitoring of graft dysfunction with possible autoimmune etiology was globally sensitized for adult LT recipients. Alternative biliary complications should autoimmunne carefully excluded, particularly in patients who present with rapid laboratory deterioration including hyperbilirubinemia, which could reflect either a mechanical obstruction or the progression of underlying misrecognized de novo AIH to the deterioration of liver functionality.
Because significant drug-drug interactions are known to occur between calcineurin inhibitors and telaprevir, the patients received reduced doses of cyclosporine during telaprevir co-administration and were closely monitored for cyclosporine levels[ 38 ].
It is of note that in some cases, the diagnosis of de novo AIH arises from a standard one-year post-LT biopsy in the absence of prior major clinical or laboratory findings. Induction of autoimmune eatite by pegylated interferon in a liver transplant patient with recurrent hepatitis C virus.
