    Ileal
    exclusion for Byler’s disease: An alternative surgical
    aprooach with promising early results for pruritus.

    Progressive
    familial intrahepatic 
    cholestasis (PFIC) – also called Byler’s
    disease – is an uncommon cause of hepatocellular
    cholestasis.  Affected
    children have intermittent, painless jaundice.
    Intense pruritus disproportionate to the degree
    of hyperbilirubinemia can lead to self-mutilation by
    scratching. Good
    results have been achieved with liver transplantation
    and cutaneous biliary diversion procedures, both of
    which have their complications.
    Ileal exclusion or bypass procedures offer some
    important potential advantages over these approaches.
