Autoimmune liver disease (36 hours)
Relevance. Old problems, such as standard approaches to the treatment of variant forms of autoimmune hepatitis, remain difficult to resolve. New previously unknown syndromes and diseases have emerged, such as IgG4-mediated biliary tract diseases.
This explains the need for continuous education of doctors in this field, since an untimely diagnosis of inadequate therapy can lead to fatal consequences. Thus, autoimmune liver diseases remain the most difficult to diagnose and treat among other liver diseases to date.

- It is planned to consider the diagnosis and treatment of extrahepatic manifestations of viral hepatitis C.
- The issues of treatment and diagnosis of cirrhosis of the liver, developed in the outcome of autoimmune hepatitis, and concomitant pathology, depending on the class of cirrhosis according to CHILD-PUGH, will be studied.
