Rotor's syndrome is an autosomal recessive condition characterised by a chronic, predominantly conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia. The mechanism is similar to that seen in the Dubin-Johnson syndrome, with defective excretion of organic anions into bile.

The liver is a normal colour on biopsy, unlike Dubin-Johnson syndrome.

The prognosis is excellent.
