Alagille syndrome is an inherited multisystemic disorder. We herein report an atypical case of a Japanese adult patient with Alagille syndrome. He had been diagnosed with Alagille syndrome as an infant based on a liver biopsy. At 27 years of age, he needed to start hemodialysis therapy, but an arteriovenous fistula was not created because his peripheral blood vessels were too narrow. He also had a recurrent brain infarction due to cerebral vascular stenosis. Alagille syndrome is generally recognized as a pediatric hepatic disease, but general physicians should be aware of its potential existence with renal involvement and vascular abnormalities.
