Cholestasis

Prolonged jaundice? Try ruling out the many potential causes.

Testing can help accelerate diagnosis, may improve treatment outcomes, and may prevent life-threatening problems.

Jaundice lasting for more than 2 weeks in patients with cholestasis can be a sign of an underlying—and potentially serious—condition.

Cholestasis happens when a digestive fluid called bile does not flow from the liver properly. This may cause toxic bile acids to build up in the liver.

Diagnosing the underlying cause of cholestasis can be challenging. Genetic testing is now available and can help to accelerate diagnosis of treatable genetic diseases. There are over 100 potential causes of cholestasis, and this test can rule out up to 66 potential genetic causes.

If your child or loved one has cholestasis or prolonged jaundice without a known cause, it could be a life-threatening condition.

Don’t wait; talk to your child’s doctor about how to diagnose or rule out the potential causes of your child's cholestasis with genetic testing.

Genetic testing is free for eligible patients.

Retrophin offers a test through a partnership with the EGL Genetics called the EGL Genetics Cholestasis Panel that checks for 66 potential genetic causes of cholestasis all at once. Talk to your child's doctor about ordering this test.

The following questions will help you determine if you should talk to your child's doctor about ordering the EGL Genetics test.
