In brief: Untreated? cirrhosis

Autoimmune hepatitis is treatable, and often complications can be prevented.
There can be a relatively sudden onset of jaundice and malaise, but it does not always have symptoms at first. Untreated autoimmune hepatitis can lead to chronic liver disease and cirrhosis. Complications of cirrhosis can include edema (swelling), jaundice (yellowing of skin), liver cancer, many others.
