Abstract  
Purpose: To evaluate the effect of sympathomimetic amine therapy for a life threatening autoimmune disorder. Materials and Methods: Dextroamphetamine sulfate was used to treat edema, myalgia, and chronic fatigue associated with autoimmune hepatitis (AIH). Results: Sympathomimetic amine therapy completely abrogated the symptoms associated with AIH. Conclusions: AIH should be added to the long list of chronic treatment-refractory conditions that respond quickly and effectively to treatment with sympathomimetic amines.
Key words:  Autoimmune hepatitis      Sympathetic hypofunction      Chronic fatigue
