Autoimmune Hepatitis in Children

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone diagnose and treat children and adolescents with autoimmune hepatitis, a chronic condition that causes inflammation in the liver. The symptoms of this condition—including nausea, fatigue, and a loss of appetite—can be difficult to recognize. But our experts have the experience to distinguish it from other conditions and offer treatments that control inflammation and lessen or eliminate symptoms.

Autoimmune hepatitis often requires long-term management. Our doctors take a family-centered approach to helping children adjust to a treatment plan with ongoing nutritional and emotional support.

Doctors at NYU Langone also diagnose and manage viral hepatitis in adults.
