Abstract

Hepatic granuloma occurs rarely in the polymyalgia rheumatica syndrome. A case was presented of a 62-year-old woman with polymyalgia rheumatica, elevated concentrations of hepatic enzymes, and granuloma of the liver. Low doses of corticosteroids produced a marked improvement in the patient's condition and a return of liver function tests to normal. This is apparently the first case of polymyalgia rheumatica associated with liver granuloma that has been reported in Israel.
