  1. Cholestasis

    Cholestasis is a condition where bile cannot flow from the liver to the duodenum. The two basic distinctions are an obstructive type of cholestasis where there is a mechanical blockage in the duct system that can occur from a gallstone or malignancy, and metabolic types of cholestasis which are disturbances in bile formation that can occur because of genetic defects or acquired as a side effect of many medications. Classification is further divided into acute or chronic and extrahepatic or intrahepatic.

  1. cholestasis

    Cholestasis is a medical condition characterized by the reduction or stoppage of bile flow from the liver to the small intestine. This disruption can occur either within the liver (intrahepatic cholestasis) or outside the liver (extrahepatic cholestasis). It often leads to a buildup of bile substances in the blood, causing symptoms like jaundice, itching, and light-colored stools. It can be caused by various diseases, conditions, or disorders impacting the liver, gallbladder, or bile ducts.
