Hepatology in Neonates
Biliary atresia is a very rare disease of the liver and bile ducts that occurs in new born babies. Symptoms of biliary atresia appear with in two to eight weeks after birth. Cells within the liver produce liquid called bile. Bile helps to digest fat. It also carries waste products from the liver to the intestines for excretion. Cholestatic jaundice is a common presenting feature of neonatal hepatobiliary and metabolic dysfunction. Any infant jaundiced in 2 to 3 weeks after birth should have the serum bilirubin level fractionated into a conjugated and unconjugated portion.
