Arteriohepatic dysplasia. I. Pitfalls in diagnosis and management.

Abstract

Differentiating intrahepatic cholestasis from extrahepatic biliary tract obstruction may be difficult. Four patients with intraoperative cholangiographic evidence of extrahepatic ductal atresia who underwent hepatoportoenterostomy are described. All were ultimately shown to have arteriohepatic dysplasia with hypoplastic but patent extrahepatic ductal systems. The difficulty in establishing an accurate diagnosis, hazards associated with hepatoportoenterostomy, and suggestions for evaluation and management are discussed.
