Varies with conditin: The liver can show an injury pattern specific to its cause that may not produce jaundice in its early or moderate stages. Various simple viruses like mumps or mono can produce liver enzyme elevations without jaundice.One of the most elevated sets of liver enzyme studies i ever saw was a 9mo with unrecognized hepatitis b he got from mom at birth. He was never became jaundiced.
