Obstructive Jaundice: Understanding the pathophysiology

Ketan Vagholkar.

Abstract
Jaundice is one of the commonest symptom in hepatobiliary disorders. The nature of jaundice may vary from hepatocellular to obstructive pattern. In a few cases it may be haemolytic in nature. Identifying and ascertaining the type is pivotal for further investigation. A combination of haematological and radiological investigations will not only provide information on the severity and the impact of obstructive jaundice on various organ systems of the body but also help in determining the prognosis. Endoscopy can also provide diagnostic as well as therapeutic benefit in obstructive jaundice. The pathophysiology, clinical evaluation and investigations in a case of obstructive jaundice is discussed in this paper.

Key words: Jaundice, obstructive, causes, complications, investigations
