Özet

Background and Aim 25-Hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] has an important role in fibrosis progression and inflammatory response in patients with various etiologies of chronic liver disease. However, its influence on autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) has not been investigated. We evaluated the association of serum 25(OH)D levels with clinical, biochemical and histological features and response to therapy in AIH.
