Abstract

Two cases of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with autoimmune hepatitis are reported. Both patients had a mild form of SLE without central nervous system or renal involvement and showed a rapid response to corticosteroid therapy. Neither of them had antibodies to mitochondria, smooth muscle, and liver/kidney microsome-1 related to autoimmune hepatitis. Instead, novel autoantibodies which react with transfer RNA-related antigen were detected. These autoantibodies could be a useful marker for classification of SLE associated with autoimmune hepatitis.
