  5. 5. How to do it ? 3 wk baby, jaundice  Does the urine stain diapers:yes  What is the stool color ? ConfirmYellow Confirm Pale Not sure Confirm Worried, fast track + Nuclear scanLFT Ultrasound Liver biopsy
  6. 6. Case I: 64 days old baby• Jaundice noticed from day 3 life..• Diaper staining urine..• Persistently pale stools from birth• Not sick• BW: 2.2kg, No weight gain despite adequate feeding• No abnormal facies, dysmorphism, Cataract• Liver 3cm firm, Spleen:1cm• CVS: Normal

  9. 9. Liver Biopsy• Ductular proliferation• Fibrosis• Widening of portal tracts• Early cirrhosisBiliary atresia Pale stool Not sick child USG features Biopsy
  10. 10. Subtype of type 3 atresia with patent gall bladder & distal bile duct butproximal atresia. The gall bladder though good in size, is filled with mucous. Type II CBD, CHD, GB atretic; Confluence patent Type 1, CBD atretic Type III CBD, CHD, GB atretic; Confluence not patent

  25. 25. Case IV: 4 mo• Jaundice from 3rd month of life• Intermittently pale and pigmented stools• Pruritus 15 days; PILBD, PFIC, A-1 AT def. ?• Poor wt gain, Normal development Family history• H/O Sib death – jaundice, pruritus and diarrhea at 6mo age, death at 5yrs• H/O Cholestasis of pregnancy in mother• O/E: Icterus +• Liver 3cm soft, Spleen: NP
