Abstract

We report an unusual case of intermittent episodes of cholestasis in a young patient. The cholestatic attacks were preceded in each case by an infection and subsequent antibiotic therapies. After ruling out many possible causes of cholestatic hepatitis, the differential diagnoses were a benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis or a drug-induced liver injury. We discuss here the diagnostic approach and interpretation of the genetic analysis. © 2019 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
