• The relationship between neonatal hepatitis and biliary atresia has been extensively discussed. Clinical and laboratory evaluations are often unsuccessful in distinguishing between the two diseases. Laparotomy, cholangiogram, and liver biopsy are often required. Several authors have proposed that the two diseases may represent variable expressions of one entity. A case that illustrates infantile obstructive cholangiopathy is presented and the clinical implications are discussed.
