Visual inspection of stools for the presence or absence of bile pigment was evaluated prospectively to determine its value in differentiating between biliary atresia and hepatitis. In a group of 23 infants with prolonged neonatal cholestasis the presence of stool pigment excluded extrahepatic biliary atresia, while its absence was suggestive of extrahepatic biliary atresia. This simple test was found to be more reliable than more sophisticated diagnostic techniques.
