rotor syndrome

Hello,

I was doing a step 2 ck q bank question that talked about a man in his forties presenting with dark urine etc.

I thought this was strange as rotor's is congenital and usually shows up from birth from what I have read. Was this just a poorly made question?

Best,

Thomas

Rotor is a defect in hepatic storage of bilirubin. it is induced by stress or infection the jaundice is mild and does not present with dark urine.It is hereditary.Yes it can appear in a 40yr old because almost all persons with mild diseases live beyond 40yrs.
