Abstract Summary: Chronic granulomatous hepatitis. Three cases are described in which a chronic relapsing febrile illness was associated with granulomas in the liver. None of the known causes of hepatic granulomas was present in these patients. In two cases there was clinical improvement after corticosteroid treatment and this was associated with resolution of the histological changes on liver biopsy. These three cases support the concept that chronic granulomatous hepatitis of unknown aetiology is a distinct entity. Copyright
