Benign Recurrent Intrahepatic Cholestasis 1

Common Name(s)

Benign Recurrent Intrahepatic Cholestasis 1

Benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis is characterized by intermittent episodes of cholestasis without extrahepatic bile duct obstruction. There is initial elevation of serum bile acids, followed by cholestatic jaundice which generally spontaneously resolves after periods of weeks to months ({15:Summerskill and Walshe, 1959}; {13:Schapiro and Isselbacher, 1963}; {3:Brenard et al., 1989}). {18:Tygstrup et al. (1999)} stated that referring to this disorder as 'benign' is a misnomer, because the disease has an impact on the quality of life in some patients. They preferred the term 'recurrent familial intrahepatic cholestasis.' Genetic Heterogeneity of Benign Recurrent Intrahepatic Cholestasis See also BRIC2 ({605479}), caused by mutation in the ABCB11 gene ({603201}) on chromosome 2q24.
