Cholestasis, neonatal intrahepatic, caused by citrin deficiency
A form of citrullinemia type 2 with neonatal onset, characterized by suppression of the bile flow, hepatic fibrosis, low birth weight, growth retardation, hypoproteinemia, variable liver dysfunction. Neonatal intrahepatic cholestasis due to citrin deficiency is generally not severe and symptoms disappear by one year of age with an appropriate diet. Years or even decades later, however, some individuals develop the characteristic features of citrullinemia type 2 with neuropsychiatric symptoms.
