The most prevalent reason for a juvenile liver transplant is biliary atresia (BA). BA’s variable presentation, natural history, and treatment with the Kasai portoenterostomy have all been extensively reported; nevertheless, the timing of BA’s onset in relation to birth has not been completely established.

This early onset had ramifications for administering medicines sooner and discovering potential elements driving BA’s genesis.
