In brief: Sometimes

Good question but difficult to answer. Rarely, there can an autoimmune basis for having both, the adrenal gland and liver being attacked by body's own immune system (causing adrenalitis and hepatitis respectively).
In infants with hypopituitraism where they are lacking adequate cortisol levels due to adrenal insufficiency, it is not uncommon to see elevated liver enzymes. Talk with your doctor.
