Abstract

Cholestatic jaundice in the first few weeks of life may herald potentially life-threatening pathology. It is therefore incumbent upon the pediatric practitioner to have a high index of suspicion for severe disease when investigating jaundice in a young infant. This article outlines the epidemiology, pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, and diagnostic workup for both the most common and the most severe causes of cholestasis in the neonatal period.
