Autoimmune Diseases : A Part from The Book Chapter : Association of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Primary Biliary Cholangitis

Although patients with an autoimmune disease often present with other autoimmune diseases, several reports have indicated that the incidence of coexisting SLE and PBC ranges from 0% to 3.7%. Some patients with SLE and PBC may have a common genetic susceptibility toward developing these diseases; however, the co-occurrence of SLE and PBC is incidental. Whether SLE occurs accidentally with comorbid PBC or has a common immunological basis remains unclear. To date, only a few systematic literature reviews have been conducted on patients with comorbid SLE and PBC. In this study, a literature search and review of patients with comorbid SLE and PBC were conducted.
