Main Article Content

Dr Atul Kadam

Abstract

A 3-day-old male neonate presented with obstructive jaundice; a critical condition often indicative of severe underlying hepatobiliary dysfunction. Subsequent imaging and diagnostic evaluations confirmed biliary atresia, a rare congenital disorder characterized by obliteration or discontinuity of the extrahepatic biliary system, leading to bile flow obstruction. This case report details the clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, management strategies, and the short-term outcomes observed. This case provides a comparative analysis with similar cases reported in the literature, highlighting the importance of early diagnosis and the implications of surgical intervention in the prognosis of biliary atresia. Through this case, we aim to augment the existing knowledge on neonatal jaundice, focusing particularly on its etiological spectrum and management outcomes.
