Cholestatic hepatitis is called as cholangiolitic hepatitis, which is the obstruction of bile secretion and dysfunction of bile canaliculi in the Golgi apparatus of the liver cells. Viral infection is the most common cause of cholestatic hepatitis. A cholestatic problem causes characteristic changes in the blood. The levels of liver enzymes referred to alkaline phosphotase and gamma glutamyl-transferase (GGT) rise. Bilirubin is the substance that causes jaundice, or the yellow-orange color of patient with a serious liver problem. During the acute stage of cholestatic hepatitis, electron microscopy and histo-chemical studies of the liver cell demonstrated that the cell apparatuses, such as the Golgi apparatus, exhibited degeneration of the smooth endoreticulum and mitochondria.
