definitely icterus is here no doubt . hepatitis a should b ruled out first by doing IgM HAV . plus prothrombin time n inr . if there long history plus pruritis . obstructive causes of jaundice should b considered do usg whole abdomen first . other good d/ds are autoimmune hepatitis / wilson disease . liver biopsy should b kept as last resort for diagnostic .

Thank you doctor

Thank you for sharing the case, Child seems to have abnormal facies as well. Get a detailed history about other associated symptoms as well. A thorough physical examination..... Get fractionation of the bilirubin into its components .... Rule out causes of direct or indirect hyperbilirubinemia , such as enzyme deficiencies , ineffective erythropoiesis , hemolytic anaemia ....Treat accordingly.

Thank you doctor
