The finding of high conjugated bilirubin needs prompt evaluation to rule out liver or bile duct pathology. If assessment of total and direct bilirubin is carried routinely in any infant whose jaundice persists for more than 2 weeks, early identification of a group of children who need corrective surgery for atresia of the extra hepatic bile duct is possible. The aim of this review is to look at common causes of infantile cholestasis with emphasis on evaluation, diagnosis, complications, treatment and outcome of infant with neonatal cholestasis.
