Arthrogryposis, renal dysfunction and cholestasis syndrome: report of five patients from three Italian families.

Author information

Divisione Pediatria II, Istituto G. Gaslini, Genova, Italy.


We report on five patients from three families with neurogenic arthrogryposis, cholestasis and tubular renal dysfunction. Despite a similar clinical picture the liver histology showed a broad pathological spectrum, ranging from pigment storage to parenchymal giant cell transformation and ductopenia. The findings are compared with those of other cases from the literature in search of a correct nosology of the syndrome characterized by arthrogryposis, renal and liver disease. CONCLUSION. We propose to consider the picture of arthrogryposis, renal tubular dysfunction and cholestasis as a single syndrome.
