A newborn female was hospitalized due to metabolic acidosis and conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia. Extrahepatic biliary atresia (EHBA) was suspected why a (99m)Tc-mebrofenin cholescintigraphy was performed. It showed poor hepatocyte tracer uptake and no drainage to the gut. The hepatocyte dysfunction was caused by an obstructing adrenal gland neuroblastoma later visualised by ultrasound and MRI. The cholescintigraphy is a non-invasive modality to exclude or confirm the suspicion of EHBA. Furthermore neonatal conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia demands the use of a multimodality imaging strategy for differential diagnosis to EHBA.
