Abstract

We report a case of a newborn with cholestasis that was diagnosed as nonsyndromic Alagille syndrome. The main feature of the disease is a paucity of biliary ducts. There are two known types of the disease: the syndromic type which is associated with other congenital defects and the nonsyndromic type without other anomalies detected at birth. We describe the case and discuss its clinical and radiologic findings. We also discuss the various etiologies of cholestasis that are included in the differential diagnosis.
