Abstract

Alagille syndrome is an uncommon pathology. It is found in 1/100,000 live births. It is characterized by biliary duct hypoplasia associated with other malformations. We report the case of a four-year-old Chinese child who was diagnosed with this pathology after being adopted at 11 months of age.
