Progressive intrahepatic cholestasis

Common Name(s)

Progressive intrahepatic cholestasis

Progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis is a heterogeneous group of autosomal recessive liver disorders characterized by early onset of cholestasis that progresses to hepatic fibrosis, cirrhosis, and end-stage liver disease before adulthood ({1:Alonso et al., 1994}; {38:Whitington et al., 1994}; {22:Klomp et al., 2004}). Genetic Heterogeneity of Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis PFIC is a genetically heterogeneous disorder caused by defects in the transport of bile acids. See also PFIC2 ({601847}), caused by mutation in a liver-specific ATP-binding cassette transporter gene (ABCB11; {603201}) on chromosome 2q24; PFIC3 ({602347}), caused by mutation in the class III multidrug resistance P-glycoprotein gene (ABCB4; {171060}) on chromosome 7q21; and PFIC4 ({615878}), caused by mutation in the TJP2 gene ({607709}) on chromosome 9q12. PFIC1 and PFIC2 are associated with mildly elevated or normal serum levels of gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT1; {612346}), whereas PFIC3 is associated with high serum GGT1 levels and liver histology that shows portal inflammation and ductular proliferation in an early stage ({27,26:Maggiore et al., 1987, 1991}). PFIC4 is associated with normal or mildly increased GGT levels ({33:Sambrotta et al., 2014}). There are also several phenotypically similar liver disorders that result from congenital defects in bile acid synthesis. See CBAS1 ({607765}).
