enzymes that reflect cholestasis 3
#harrison #liver #liverfunctiontests #medicine
In the absence of jaundice or elevated aminotransferases, an elevated alkaline phosphatase of liver origin often, but not always, suggests early cholestasis and, less often, hepatic infiltration by tumor or gran- ulomata. Other conditions that cause isolated elevations of the alkaline phosphatase include Hodgkin’s disease, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, congestive heart failure, amyloidosis, and inflammatory bowel disease. The level of serum alkaline phosphatase elevation is not helpful in distinguishing between intrahepatic and extrahepatic cholestasis. There is essentially no difference among the values found in obstruc- tive jaundice due to cancer, common duct stone, sclerosing cholangitis, or bile duct stricture. Values are similarly increased in patients with intrahepatic cholestasis due to drug-induced hepatitis, primary biliary cirrhosis, rejection of transplanted livers, and, rarely, alcohol-induced steatohepatitis. Values are also greatly elevated in hepatobiliary dis- orders seen in patients with AIDS (e.g., AIDS cholangiopathy due to cytomegalovirus or cryptosporidial infection and tuberculosis with hepatic involvement).
