Case Study
Pathological icterus with elevation of direct bilirubin (cholestasis) may be caused by many reasons, but immature liver of a premature child is particularly prone to cholestasis due to various etiological factors. We present a case of a premature infant with cholestasis in the course of parenteral nutrition and generalized infection. We emphasize that in the developmental period diagnostic examinations should be thorough and multidirectional.
