See details: These results suggest significant liver disease and this must be evaluated immediately. Speak with the doctor who ordered the tests. Get screened for hepatitis and consider a referral to a GI specialist.

Good Hx essential: The first question to be resolved is whether the cholestasis results from intrahepatic or extrahepatic disease process, bearing in mind that several intrahepatic causes of cholestatic jaundice can mimic extrahepatic obstruction to varying degree. Further blood test, US Abd. CT Scan with good hist. will be needed for DX. PBC, PSC, Drug induced hepatitis & many more should be r/o by GI ASAP
