Biliary atresia is a significant cause of neonatal jaundice that needs differentiation from neonatal hepatitis. Early identification of biliary atresia is important as surgical intervention is required. A hepatobiliary scan can help in the diagnosis of biliary atresia. Scintigraphic findings in a rare type of biliary atresia are described here to serve as a guide to other nuclear medicine physicians. Type 7 biliary atresia, which has an atretic common bile duct only, appears as persistent radiotracer activity in the gallbladder with no tracer activity in the intestines.
