PMID:  16418964     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report here on a newborn infant who initially presented with a history of gastroschisis, abdominal distension, and jaundice. Further studies revealed that the child had findings consistent with extrahepatic biliary atresia (EHBA). The child later developed hepatic failure and subsequently expired. The purpose of this case report is to discuss the pathogenesis of each disease process and to identify any commonality between the pathogenesis of gastroschisis and EHBA.
