Hepatic Manifestations

In a series of 163 children with liver involvement, 132 presented with neonatal cholestatic jaundice, and among the 31 patients who did not present with neonatal jaundice 5 became jaundiced later.[3] Neonatal cholestasis may be complete with acholic stools. The evolution is characterized by persistent or intermittent icterus, but usually biological cholestasis persists. Pruritus, hypercho-lesterolemia, xanthomas, and fat-soluble vitamin malabsorption are nonspecific consequences of the cholestasis. In some patients, unexplained attenuation or disappearance of pruritus and xanthomas occurs along with decrease in cholesterol level. Bile duct paucity is usually demonstrated by liver biopsy. This biopsy could be unnecessary in patients with complete syndrome.[4]
