Abstract

Giant-cell hepatitis is most commonly found in neonates and rarely seen in the adult population. Diagnosis in adult cases is often difficult to make, as the presentation and etiologies vary. The disease can progress to fulminant hepatitis, necessitating liver transplantation, in some cases.
