Sample text

Antibodies to carbonic anhydrase are present in the serum of patients with autoimmune cholangitis in some studies, but have not been discriminatory in others. Of the 15 patients with autoimmune cholangitis with biopsies reported in one study, six had a PBC-like and seven had a PSC-like pattern of injury, suggesting that “autoimmune cholangitis” may represent a mixed group of autoimmune disorders at varying stages, or possibly a transition state [14]. Although data are largely lacking, it is thought that the response to ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) therapy in these patients is the same or slightly better [15] as for those who are AMA-positive, and there are accordingly no differences in the treatments prescribed for these two groups at the present time.

Plasma cells are rare, and immunophenotyping shows that most of the portal lymphocytes are T cells, with both CD4 + and CD8 + cells represented. CD4 + cells mediate graft injury by releasing cytokines which activate other effector cells, while CD8 + cells probably cause injury by direct cytopathic attack on graft cells [25]. Bile duct injury may be focal in mild acute rejection, or bile ducts may be obscured by the inflammatory infiltrate and difficult to identify (Fig. 2). The bile duct epithelium is infiltrated by lymphocytes, and the biliary epithelial cells show cell swelling, cytoplasmic vacuolization, nuclear crowding and reactive change such as prominent nucleoli and slight increase in the nuclear/cytoplasmic ratio, and irregular spacing of nuclei.

The scheme currently used in many centers, the Banff Consensus Schema, relies upon a global assessment and generation of a rejection activity index by grading individual features [35]. At least two of the following three features are required for a histologic diagnosis of acute rejection: mixed portal inflammatory infiltrate, predominantly mononuclear but also containing neutrophils and eosinophils; bile duct damage or inflammation; and endothelialitis involving portal vein branches or terminal hepatic venules.
