Primary hepatocellular carcinoma, one of the most common malignancies in the world, develops in chronic liver diseases of different etiologies. Hepatitis B and non-A, non-B infections, alcoholic cirrhosis, hemochromatosis, contamination with aflatoxins, and oral contraceptives are just a few of the conditions that have been associated with this carcinoma. To our knowledge, few cases of autoimmune chronic active hepatitis and hepatitis and hepatocellular carcinoma have been reported in the literature. We describe a patient who developed hepatocellular carcinoma 21 years after the onset of the autoimmune hepatitis.
