Abstract

A 48 years old patient was admitted to the Internal Medicine ward due to progressive weakness and abnormal liver function tests. During three months of hospitalization she developed opportunistic infections with Cryptococcus and Pneumocystic jiroveci pneumonia. The CD4+ T-cell lymphocyte count was very low with no evidence of infection with human immunodeficiency virus. Liver disease deteriorated with the appearance of profound jaundice and severe hepatitis. The patient's laboratory and clinical presentation were compatible with the diagnosis of idiopathic CD4 + T-cell lymphocytopenia--ICL. The authors reviewed the literature on ICL and discuss the rare hepatic presentation of this uncommon syndrome.
