Abstract

Whereas physiologic jaundice constitutes a common finding in neonates, a few cases present with cholestatic jaundice owing to various pathologic conditions, including extrahepatic biliary obstruction. We report the case of a 2-day-old female neonate presenting with neonatal cholestasis, nonbilious vomiting with pyloric obstruction, and multiple intestinal atresias. A pathognomonic clinicoradiologic triad is described, based on clinical data, plain abdominal x-ray, and ultrasound examination.
