      Anil Kumar Y.C, N. Chowdareddy, Ravichander B
Abstract: - We report a case of recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis in an 4-year-old boy who developed four episodes of purities and jaundice at the ages of 6months, 1yr 2yr and 4 years. Each episodes had lasted 6-8 weeks and the 2nd and 3rd episodes were associated with fever which had lasted for 4-6 days. The liver functions were minimally deranged and serum bilirubin, returned to normal between attacks. Investigation in previous episodes proved cholestatic hepatitis and excluded other causes of liver disease. First three episodes had been diagnosed as viral hepatitis and managed for the same. On 4th recurrence child had been extensively investigated and proved to have features of benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis (BRIC). Rarity of the disease and its unpredictable clinical morbidity and resemblance to viral hepatitis prompted us to report this case.
