Abstract

Extrahepatic manifestations have been reported in a majority of patients with ACAH. We describe an 11-year-old girl with CAH who developed life- threatening AH and was successfully managed with mechanical ventilation and high-dose steroids. Although a number of pulmonary manifestations have been described in association with AICAH, this article is the first showing its association with AH.
