Background

Biliary atresia  is a rare disorder in children that affects the biliary tract with progressive fibrosing obstruction and  liver failure. Early detection in children with persisting jaundice can improve on the quality of life and prevent a poor outcome. The diagnosis is based on laboratory test, imaging findings and liver biopsy.

 

Current management includes multidisciplinary care teams, Kasai portoenterostomy and prevention of cholangitis, but in cases of failure and end-stage cirrhosis a liver trasplantation can be taken into consideration.
