Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(8):892-895.   Published online August 15, 2004
Rotor syndrome is a rare benign familial disorder characterized by chronic, fluctuating, nonhemolytic and predominantly direct bilirubinemia with normal liver tissue. We have recently experienced two cases of Rotor syndrome in a brother and sister. They revealed icteric sclerae with mild hepatomegaly in physical examination. Laboratory findings showed increased serum bilirubin with direct bilirubin predominance. The urinary excretion of total...
