Abstract

 

The diagnosis of hypopituitarism should be considered in infants with unexplained neonatal hepatitis. Delay in diagnosis and appropriate treatment is associated with persistently abnormal liver function tests and may lead to irreversible liver disease. A 2-week-old female child presented with hyperbilirubinemia and found to have hypopituitarism. The diagnosis was confirmed by demonstrating low levels of cortisol and thyroxine and resolution of symptoms with replacement therapy.

 

Keywords: Hyperbilirubin, neonate, panhypopituitarism.
