Confounders were controlled by excluding those with a history of co-morbid conditions like positive viral hepatitis serology, chronic liver disease, malaria and typhoid fever by performing above mentioned relative investigations.
Hepatitis serology was negative for hepatitis B surface antigen and antibodies thereto; anti-hepatitis C virus antibodies; antinuclear antibodies; antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies; anticardiolipin antibodies; and lupus anticoagulant.
Laboratory tests, including complete blood count, electrolyte panel, liver and kidney function tests, blood chemistry HIV and hepatitis serology antinuclear antibody (ANA), anti-dsDNA, and extractable nuclear antigen antibodies (ENA) panels, were normal.
CONCLUSION: LFT abnormalities were significant in comparison to patients with negative hepatitis serology.
Brightness and posterior attenuation on ultrasound abdomen were considered indices for fatty liver disease in presence of elevated ALT, negative hepatitis serology and absence of alcohol intake.
Other blood tests would include repeat viral hepatitis serology for types A, B and C to exclude recently acquired acute hepatitis, a cytomegalovirus (CMV) polymerase chain recation (PCR) test, full blood count and differential and inflammatory markers.
The groups consisted of acute hepatitis serology tests (IgM anti-HAV, hepatitis B surface antigen, total anti-hepatitis B core with reflex IgM if positive, anti-hepatitis C virus) and chronic hepatitis serology tests (hepatitis B surface antigen, total anti-hepatitis B core, and anti-hepatitis C virus).
An infection screen (including hepatitis serology and anti-streptolysin O titre), immunology screen and skin biopsy was performed and the patient was given a weeklong course of oral prednisolone at a dose of 15 mg once daily.
Serum antinuclear antibodies, compliment levels, eosinophils and hepatitis serology were all within normal limits.
Standard liver function tests (LFT), including aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), total and direct bilirubin, albumin (Alb), and hepatitis serology were performed on aliquots of each sample at entry and recorded.
