Caption: Liver in obstructive jaundice. Section through a liver where an obstruction has caused an interruption to the drainage of bile. This condition, known as obstructive or post-hepatic jaundice, causes a build up of bilirubin in the blood and tissues, leading to a yellowing of the skin (jaundice). The most common causes are gallstones in the common bile duct and pancreatic cancer.
