Core Tip We have aimed to report a case of a female patient with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) overlap syndrome associated to ulcerative colitis and to systematically review the available cases of AIH and PSC overlap syndrome. A previously healthy 22-year-old woman presented with abdominal pain and jaundice. She had a reagent antinuclear factor (1:640, with a homogeneous nuclear pattern). Magnetic resonance cholangiography showed a cirrhotic liver with multiple focal areas of strictures of the intrahepatic bile ducts, with associate dilations. Liver biopsy described periportal necroinflammatory activity, plasmocyte infiltration, and advanced fibrosis. Colonoscopy had shown ulcerative pancolitis and mild activity (Mayo score 1), with a spared rectum. Treatment with corticosteroids, azathioprine, ursodeoxycholic acid and mesalamine was begun, with improvement in laboratory tests. Searches for the systematic review were run on seven electronic databases, retrieving 3349 references. In the final analysis, 44 references were included, with a total of 109 cases reported. The most common clinical finding was jaundice and 43.5% of cases were associated with inflammatory bowel disease. Among these, 27.6% were cases of Crohn’s disease, 68% of ulcerative colitis, and 6.4% of indeterminate colitis. Most patients were treated with steroids. All-cause mortality was 3.7%. In conclusion, PSC and AIH overlap syndrome is generally associated with inflammatory bowel disease and is associated with low mortality and good response to treatment.
