Abstract

Benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis (BRIC) is a rare autosomal recessive or sporadic disorder, characterized by recurrent episodes of intense pruritus and jaundice that resolve spontaneously without any residual liver damage. Episodic attack can occur at any age but is usually seen at 2nd decade of life. We here report a young female with BRIC who presented the recurrent attack of cholestatic jaundice and pruritus, but was negative for all possible etiology. Liver biopsy was consistent with intrahepatic cholestasis. She was improved after 3 months of suffering from jaundice. On follow-up, she was alright after attack.
