Answer

Infants frequently present with obstructive jaundice and acholic stools. In early infancy, this may prompt a workup for biliary atresia. [23, 24] In addition, infants with choledochal cysts often have a palpable mass in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen, accompanied with hepatomegaly.
