Abstract

We describe a 12 year-old patient that relapsed into fulminant non A, non B, non C (NANBNC) hepatitis 10 weeks post-clinical recovery. A complete clinical and pathological evaluation, including an ultra-structural examination of a liver biopsy was consistent with the diagnosis of NANBNC hepatitis. The patient relapsed into hepatic failure and required transplantation. NANBNC hepatitis may have a relapsing form that can lead to hepatic failure requiring transplantation. Consultants in hepatology should have a high degree of clinical awareness and maintain prolonged patient follow-up.
