Liver cholestasis – causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment & pathology

What is cholestasis? Cholestasis, or cholestatic liver disease, is a condition where bile gets into the liver tissue and blood stream, causing liver damage and a variety of complications. Intra-hepatic cholestasis happens in the liver and is caused by liver cells, whereas extra-hepatic cholestasis happens outside the liver and is usually from an obstruction in the bile ducts.
