A boy exhibiting conjugated hyperbilirubinemia from birth, with elevated serum gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase activity (GGT), developed liver failure unusually early (7mo); GGT concomitantly normalized. ABCB4 disease was suspected, but no ABCB4 lesion was found. The boy was instead homozygous for ABCB11 variant c.1213 T>C (p.(Cys405Arg)), which is predicted to affect protein function. Both ABCB4 and ABCB11 were normally expressed in the explanted liver, with intralobular cholestasis; however, large-duct sclerosing cholangiopathy and ductal-plate malformation also were present. The primary-cilium constituent doublecortin domain containing 2 (DCDC2) was not expressed. Co-existence of ABCB11 disease and DCDC2 disease was proposed. Further testing identified homozygosity for the canonical-receptor splice-site variant c.294-2A>G (p.?) in DCDC2. Our report emphasizes the need to integrate clinical, histological, and genetic data in patients with neonatal cholestasis.
