Benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis
Synonyms: BRIC | Summerskill-Walshe-Tygstrup syndrome
Benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis (BRIC) is a hereditary liver disorder characterized by intermittent episodes of intrahepatic cholestasis generally without progression to chronic liver damage. BRIC is now believed to belong to a clinical spectrum of intrahepatic cholestatic disorders that ranges from the mild intermittent attacks in BRIC to the severe chronic and progressive cholestasis seen in progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis (PFIC; see this term).
