A rare cause of a cholestatic jaundice in a North African teenager


Schreiner, Philipp; Stieger, Bruno; McLin, Valérie; Rougemont, Anne‐Laure; Keitel, Verena; Dröge, Carola; Müllhaupt, Beat (2019). A rare cause of a cholestatic jaundice in a North African teenager. Liver International, 39(11):2036-2041.

Abstract

We report an unusual case of intermittent episodes of cholestasis in a young patient. The cholestatic attacks were preceded in each case by an infection and subsequent antibiotic therapies. After ruling out many possible causes of cholestatic hepatitis, the differential diagnoses were a benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis or a drug-induced liver injury. We discuss here the diagnostic approach and interpretation of the genetic analysis.
