Watson-Alagille syndrome is a kind of familial intrahepatic biliary atresia associated with charac- teristic face and cardiovascular anomaly. Growth and developmental delay, anomalies of the eyes such as posterior embryotoxon, deformities of the skeletal system are often the manifestations of this syndrome. We experienced three cases of Watson-Alagille syndrome recently. These patients showed charac- teristic faces and had peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis diagnosed by pulmonary angiography or 2 dimensional echocardiography and intrahepatic biliary atresia confirmed by liver biopsy. Butterfly deformity of vertebrae was detected in case 1 only. We reported three cases of Watson-Alagille syndrome with a brief review of related literatures.
Key Words: Watson-Alagille syndrome, Jaundice, Intrahepatic biliary atresia, Pulmonary artery stenosis
