Autoimmune hepatitis

I need any information on autoimmune hepatitis. I am not finding very much text and what I've found is quite frightening. I also have hepatitis-C. Can autoimmune hepatitis stem from having hep-C?

It would make sense that Hep C would break down liver cells and expose your immune system to their contents. If the immune system reacted to form antibodies, that would seem to initiate AIH. The theory makes sense, however I can find nothing in the textbooks indicating a relationship.
