Bile-plug syndrome is defined as an obstruction of the common bile duct by bile sludge in full-term infants. It is a correctable cause of obstructive jaundice in infants and is generally treated surgically. Here, we present a case of a 5-month-old infant with bile-plug syndrome, which was treated by percutaneous biliary interventions. To the best of our knowledge, percutaneous treatment of bile-plug syndrome is reported for the first time in an infant. This minimal invasive treatment modality may be a useful alternative to surgery in infants with bile-plug syndrome.
