  15. 15. Summary Chronic Cholestatic liver disease with onset in infancy with consanguinity and sibling death with high Alk Phos and GGT, normal liver synthetic function
  16. 16. Investigation • Abdominal ultrasound - hepatomegaly with bright echotexture and normal biliary tract • Viral Markers for Hep A,B, C, E - negative • Autoimmune markers - negative • Serum total bile acids: 129.01 (0-10µmol/L)
  17. 17. Liver Biopsy ➢ ➢ ➢ ➢ Preserved lobular architecture Canalicular cholestatis with lymphocytic infiltration into portal tracts and lobules Portal, periportal and portal to portal bridging fibrosis No paucity of ducts, steatosis, giant cell change,iron overload or storage cells seen Features suggestive of intrahepatic cholestasis and suggestive of PFIC
  18. 18. Immunostaining • Chronic hepatitis with intralobular cholestasis • Moderate portal tract fibrosis with portalportal bridging fibrosis • Widespread hepatocellular deposits of copper-binding protein • Absence of canalicular expression of multidrug resistance protein 3
  19. 19. Immunostaining Control showing MDR3 staining Patient - showing absence of MDR3 staining
  20. 20. Treatment • Patient is on ursodeoxycholic acid and fat soluble vitamins • Oral rifampicin has been started for itching • Presently on follow up with growth monitoring and LFT every three months
