SANCHEZ MARQUEZ, Pedro; REY TOVAR, Mario H; GARZON, Martín A  and  ECHEVERRY, Tatiana. Recurrent Benign Intrahepatic Cholestasis is a Diagnostic Challenge. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2016, vol.31, n.1, pp.48-51. ISSN 0120-9957.

Hepatic cholestasis includes a large variety of disorders which can compromise the intrahepatic and extrahepatic pathways. Diagnosis requires a combination of clinical, biochemical, imaging, and sometimes pathological, findings. We describe the case of a patient with intermittent episodes of jaundice which resolved by themselves but which were and decisive associated with abdominal pain and severe itching. These episodes occurred during exacerbation of the intrahepatic cholestatic pattern but completely resolved during episodes of remission.

Keywords : Cholestasis; benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis; progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis; jaundice; pruritus.
