Dubin-Johnson Syndrome

Hyperbilirubinemia type 2

Overview

Type of disease: Rare conditions

Dubin-Johnson syndrome is a type of hereditary hyperbilirubinemia with a relatively benign course.  Symptoms may include a yellowish color to the skin (jaundice), and a liver that is sometimes enlarged and tender.   The symptoms often do not present until puberty or adulthood. The syndrome interferes with the body’s ability to move bilirubin from the liver. In most cases, treatment is not required.  Source: Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center (GARD), supported by ORDR-NCATS and NHGRI.
