A 57-year-old patient who developed hyperbilirubinemia after surgery for an aortic arch aneurysm subsequently suffered pseudomonas sepsis. Low-volume biliary drainage from the common bile duct was colorless. A disturbance in the liver's excretory system caused jaundice. Sepsis and jaundice were resolved when hepatic excretory function recovered.
