• A patient with autoimmune hepatitis B surface antigen—negative chronic active hepatitis (CAH) developed uveitis during the course of her disease. The occurrence of this eye disorder provides additional support for an autoimmune pathogenesis for CAH. Clinicians should be alert to the association of uveitis with CAH, so that patients at risk may be examined for this potentially serious ocular disease.
