A polymorphism of the tumor necrosis factor gene occurs more commonly in patients with type 1 autoimmune hepatitis than in normal subjects; it is associated with a poorer response to corticosteroids. The polymorphism may be inherited as part of the extended A1-B8-DRB1*0301 haplotype and may affect both disease expression and behavior.
