Deficiency of lysosomal enzyme glucocerebrosidase leads to Gauchers disease which is the most common sphingolipidosis. A non-neuronopathic form of gauchers disease as a result of sapocin-C deficiency is a rare entity. Sapocin-c is required for degradation of glucosylseramide and its deficiency results in an atypical form of Gauchers disease. Neonatal cholestasis is defined as a prolonged elevation of conjugated bilirubin beyond 14 days of life. We hereby present a 10 month old male child who presented with neonatal cholestasis due to sapocin-C deficiency, which is the first rare case being reported in literature.
