Abstract Progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis type 3 is caused by a mutation in the ATP-binding cassette, subfamily B, member 4 (ABCB4) gene encoding multidrug resistance protein 3. A 32-year-old woman with a history of acute hepatitis at age 9 years was found to have jaundice during pregnancy in 2008, and was diagnosed as having intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy. In 2009, she underwent cholecystectomy for gallstones and chronic cholecystitis. However, itching and jaundice did not resolve postoperatively. She was admitted to our hospital with fatigue, jaundice, and a recently elevated γ-glutamyl...

Semin Liver Dis 2018; 38: 299-307 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1667299ATP-binding cassette subfamily B member 4 (ABCB4) is a phospholipid translocator at the canalicular membrane of the hepatocyte, which “flops” phosphatidylcholine into bile. Dysfunction of this transporter due to ABCB4 gene variants can cause liver diseases and has been called ABCB4 deficiency. Several diseases including progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis type 3 (PFIC3), low phospholipid-associated cholelithiasis (LPAC), a subgroup of patients developing intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP), drug-induced liver injury and chronic chola...

AbstractBackground and ObjectivesHepatitis B is a major health concern in Asia. Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection may cause hepatic cirrhosis and liver cancer. HBV is transmitted horizontally through blood and blood products and vertically from mother to infant. Perinatal infection is the main route of transmission in regions with high prevalence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HbsAg) carriage, and perinatal transmission leads to high rates of chronic infection. Therefore, it is important to prevent mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HBV1. The present study aims at comparing the use of antivirals (lamivudine vs...

Idiopathic portal hypertension, non-cirrhotic portal fibrosis and idiopathic non-cirrhotic portal hypertension (INCPH) indicate the same clinical entity.[1] These terms, thereafter referred to as INCPH, designate a heterogeneous group of liver diseases causing portal hypertension and characterized by the absence of cirrhotic modification of the liver parenchyma and the patency of the portal and hepatic veins. Liver histological lesions found in patients with INCPH include obliterative portal venopathy, hepatoportal sclerosis, nodular regenerative hyperplasia and incomplete septal cirrhosis.

Caroli ´s syndrome is a rare congenital disease with an incidence of 1:1,000,000 characterized by a non-obstructive segmental cystic dilation of large intrahepatic bile ducts [1]. There are two distinguishable forms: Caroli’s syndrome, which is associated with congenital hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis a nd Caroli’s disease, a much more rare condition which is linked with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease [2]. Caroli’s syndrome can affect young women in their childbearing age, however, due its rare incidence there is paucity of data in the literature [2–4].
