Giant cell hepatitis associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia (GCH-AHA) is a rare and severe disease characterized by autoimmune hemolysis associated with acute liver injury, histologically defined by widespread giant cell transformation. It occurs after the neonatal period, most commonly in the first year of life and uniquely affects pediatric patients. It is still poorly understood and likely underdiagnosed, although in recent years there have been advances in the understanding of its pathogenesis and the liver injury is now hypothesized to be secondary to a humoral immune mechanism.
