Abstract

A case of familial progressive intrahepatic cholestasis syndrome is presented in which the infant had the radiographic findings of meconium peritonitis and normal sweat chloride determinations in the newborn period. At age 12 years the child has elevated sweat chloride determinations and normal pancreatic drainage studies. The occurrence of meconium peritonitis and its possible relationship to this cholestatic syndrome are discussed.
