Rotor syndrome is a rare, relatively benign autosomal recessive bilirubin disorder of unknown origin.



It has many things in common with Dubin-Johnson syndrome except that in Rotor Syndrome, the liver cells are not pigmented. The main symptom is a non-itching jaundice. There is a rise in bilirubin in the patient's serum, mainly of the conjugated type.

It can be differentiated from Dubin-Johnson syndrome in the following ways:

Rotor syndrome DJS
appearance of liver normal histology and appearance liver has black pigmentation
gallbladder visualization gallbladder can be visualized by USG gallbladder cannot be visualized
total urine coproporphyrin content high with <70% being isomer 1 normal with >80% being isomer 1 (normal urine contains more of isomer 3 than isomer 1)


Rotor syndrome is named after the Filipino internist, Arturo Belleza Rotor (1907-1988).[1]
