Dubin-Johnson syndrome (DJS) is an autosomal recessive inherited disorder characterized by conjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Neonatal-onset DJS is rare. It is caused by dysfunction of adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette, sub-family C, member 2 (ABCC2). We found a novel compound heterozygous mutation of DJS-related gene: W709R (T2145C): a missense mutation in exon 17, and R768W (C2302T), a missense mutation in exon 18. Serum diglucuronosyl bilirubin/monoglucuronosyl bilirubin ratio was high. ABCC2 may excrete diglucuronosyl bilirubin preferentially over monoglucuronosyl bilirubin.
