Laparoscopic findings in a 32-year-old woman presenting with Alagille syndrome are reported. The liver surface showed a segmental whitish discoloration on the surface of both lobes with a transverse sulcus which was not stained enough after an intravenous injection of indocyanine green (ICG). These findings suggested an acquired bile duct injury in addition to a congenital anomaly of the bile duct in this patient.
