In this report, we describe the coexistence of two rare and debated complications of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection: interstitial nephritis, with associated focal glomerulosclerosis, and autoimmune hepatitis, in a 55-year-old HIV/HCV-coinfected woman. The patient was treated for the immune-mediated manifestations with mycophenolate mofetil, which she continued for 9 years, as symptoms relapsed at every attempt to discontinue immunosuppression. The patient finally cleared HCV infection thanks to new direct-acting agents and could discontinue immunosuppressive therapy maintaining stable conditions and laboratory parameters after 24-weeks follow-up.

Abstract

In this report, we describe the coexistence of two rare and debated complications of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection: interstitial nephritis, with associated focal glomerulosclerosis, and autoimmune hepatitis, in a 55-year-old HIV/HCV-coinfected woman. The patient was treated for the immune-mediated manifestations with mycophenolate mofetil, which she continued for 9 years, as symptoms relapsed at every attempt to discontinue immunosuppression. The patient finally cleared HCV infection thanks to new direct-acting agents and could discontinue immunosuppressive therapy maintaining stable conditions and laboratory parameters after 24-weeks follow-up.
