Abstract

Lymphomas are rarely associated with liver disease. We hereby present a case of anaplastic T cell lymphoma in a 45-year-old female, who had received four cycles CHOP chemotherapy regimen and was evaluated for abdominal pain, fever along with weight loss. She was later found to have features of chronic liver disease on ultrasound along with varices on screening endoscopy. Serological workup was positive for hepatitis C infection while her liver biopsy showed features of autoimmune hepatitis. She was managed with steroids and azathioprine along with direct acting antiviral agents.
Keywords: Anaplastic T cell lymphoma, HCV infection, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
