LABEAGA, R. et al. Ischemic hepatitis in an 81 year old patient with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2005, vol.28, n.2, pp.261-265. ISSN 1137-6627.
The congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare form of congenital heart disease, with survival beyond the 6th decade of life being rare. Even more unusual is its presentation alone, without any other form of congenital heart disease. Ischemic hepatitis is a rare entity characterized by an elevation of transaminasas and a centrilobular necrosis due to a reduction in hepatic blood flow, generally of reversible evolution. The authors present a case of ischemic hepatitis in an 81-year-old patient with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries. The fatal evolution of the episode and the longevity of the patient are both notable. We comment on the clinical and diagnostic aspects of both entities
