Abstract

In advanced stages of Hodgkin's disease, liver involvement is common. However, Hodgkin's disease mimicking cholestatic hepatitis at presentation is rare. We describe a patient with Hodgkin's disease who was initially considered to have acute cholestatic hepatitis. Liver biopsy demonstrated prominent bile duct injury associated with a florid inflammatory reaction. These changes may represent an early stage of ductal injury, subsequently leading to vanishing bile duct syndrome, a recently documented mechanism of cholestasis in Hodgkin's disease.
