A 20-year-old man was referred to our center with hyperthyroidism and hyperbilirubinemia. Hyperthyroidism combined by hepatic failure had been diagnosed on the basis of the Clinical and laboratory findings. Because of the presence of associated UGT1A1 gene polymorphism: c.211G>A, p. (Gly71Arg) missense mutation, a diagnosis of Crigler–Najjar syndrome type II was established.
