A case of infantile Dubin-Johnson syndrome with high CT attenuation in the liver
- 48 Downloads
We report a case of Dubin-Johnson syndrome (DJS) with severe infantile cholestasis and elevated computed tomography (CT) attenuation of the liver. Increased levels of urinary coproporphyrin I were found as well as pigment granules in the hepatocytes and hepatosteatosis. The CT attenuation was markedly higher in the liver of this patient at the ages of 3 and 7 months than in the spleen or kidneys. This high attenuation may be a finding specific to infantile DJS and, therefore, abdominal CT may be helpful in the diagnosis.
