Abstract

Primary biliary cholangitis is a rare liver disease which often progresses to cirrhosis. It can be difficult to diagnose as patients are often asymptomatic initially or merely complain of fatigue or pruritus. We describe the case of a 56-year-old female who presented with a 2-month history of painless jaundice and constitutional symptoms. Computed tomography scan showed massive hepatosplenomegaly with abdominal lymphadenopathy. Liver biopsy and a strongly positive antimitochondrial antibody titer confirmed the diagnosis of primary biliary cholangitis.
