Biliary Atresia is the condition in which the bile ducts get destroyed may be partially or completely resulting in obstruction of bile to intestine. Irreversible liver damage can occur as the bile gets collected in the liver. Symptoms include yellowish discoloration of skin and the white part of the eyes, dark urine.
When a baby has biliary atresia, bile flow from the liver to the gallbladder is blocked. This causes the bile to be trapped inside the liver, quickly causing damage and scarring of the liver cells (cirrhosis), and eventually liver failure
