Abstract

Gilbert Syndrome (GS) is a disorder of ineffective conjugation of glucuronic acid to bilirubin leading to an increase in unconjugated bilirubin levels in the blood. It is due to a deficiency or decreased activity of uridine diphosphate-glucuronyl transferase 1A1 (UGT1A1). It normally presents in adolescent age group especially in females because it is thought to be triggered due to increase in bilirubin production under the effect of steroid hormones released in that age. We present a case series where Gilbert Syndrome was clinically diagnosed in three male patients, all below ten years of age with unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. All three children had gallstones.
