Recurrent cholestasis is not described as a feature of nonalcoholic steato-hepatitis (NASH). We describe a lean patient with recurrent jaundice and pruritus whose liver biopsy showed feature of NASH. His laboratory work up failed to establish any other etiology. His symptoms proved on balanced nutrition.
