Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The morphologic evolution of chronic active hepatitis (CAH) over a two-year period in 57 post-puberty patients with homogeneous characteristics was studied retrospectively. Of these, 29 received therapy with steroids and immunosuppressive drugs while 28 received no therapy. At the end of the 2-year period, the statistically assessed morphologic results showed that the therapy had had a positive effect on the initial morphologic pattern.
