Biliary atresia (BA) is a sclerosing cholangiopathy of unknown cause. The disease affects infants and is the most common indication for liver transplantation in children. Outcomes for children carrying a diagnosis of BA have improved significantly due to advances in diagnosis, refinements of the Kasai hepatoportoenterostomy and outcomes of pediatric liver transplantation. Timely diagnosis and surgical treatment are vitally important in determining outcome.
