An infrequent reason of neonatal cholestasis is congenital pituitary hormone deficiency. Clinical manifestations of cholestasis and hypoglycaemia developed in a girl baby born with caesarean section at gestational week 37, with a birth weigh of 3700 g. Hypoglycemia symptoms developed at postnatal first and cholestatis at postnatal third week. Multiple pituitary hormone deficiency was identified. Cholestasis sypmtoms recovered with growth hormone therapy. Congenital pituitary hormone deficiency should be kept in mind in the newborns with hypoglycemia and cholestasis
