N2 - We report a case of a newborn girl with inspissated bile syndrome (IBS) that did not respond to treatment with oral ursodeoxycholic acid (Ursofalk). A solution was found using laparoscopic aided cholecystostomy with an indwelling catheter for local Ursofalk flushing in the gallbladder and the choledochus. This is the first report of a laparoscopic aided management of IBS without cholecystectomy or exploration of the bile ducts. This minimal invasive approach showed a clear advantage for the patient. There were no complications. The method is recommended in the treatment of IBS.
