Evaluation of ultrastructural changes by electron microscopy in neonatal cholestasis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Biliary atresia (BA) and idiopathic neonatal hepatitis (NH) account for 50-70% of all cases with neonatal cholestasis. The treatment of the former is early surgical intervention, while the latter requires non-surgical supportive care.
