Abstract

A 1-month-old infant presented with complaints of jaundice and poor oral intake for 14 days. Liver function tests were significantly deranged, and the prothrombin time-international normalized ratio (PT-INR) was high. Ultrasonography showed hepatomegaly with periportal cuffing and massive splenomegaly suggestive of an infiltrative disorder. Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy showed lipid-laden macrophages, which helped in making a diagnosis of Niemann–Pick disease. Whole exome sequencing results further confirmed the diagnosis of Niemann–Pick disease type C (NPC). NPC is a rare cause of neonatal liver failure, and since there is no known treatment for the illness, investigations must be specifically tailored to produce a diagnosis in time, which can aid in the management and prenatal counseling.
