Anti-Golgi antibodies are a type of anticytoplasmic autoantibody rarely found during routine examination of pathological samples. Although they have been mostly associated with connective autoimmune diseases, they are also present in other clinical conditions, including few cases of liver dysfunction. In this report, we describe for the first time the presence of high titres of anti-Golgi antibodies in a patient with virus-C-induced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). By immunofluorescence, the… CONTINUE READING
