Resumen

BARRA, María I. et al. Cholestasis secondary to hyperthyroidism in Graves’ disease. Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2020, vol.148, n.5, pp.697-701. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872020000500697.

Hyperthyroidism can induce elevation in several liver function tests including aminotransferases, alkaline phosphatases and, less frequently, serum bilirubin. These alterations are usually mild and asymptomatic. We report a 26 year-old male presenting with palpitations, progressive jaundice, choluria and generalized itching. Laboratory tests were compatible with hyperthyroidism and a mild elevation of bilirubin, alkaline phosphatases and gamma glutamyl transpeptidase. A liver biopsy showed portal hepatitis with canalicular cholestasis. The patient was treated temporarily with glucocorticoids, cholestyramine and betablockade. Thereafter, he was treated with radioactive iodine, after which serum bilirubin decreased steadily until normalization in ten weeks.

Palabras clave : Graves Disease; Hyperbilirubinemia; Hyperthyroidism.
