    Two young brothers with cirrhosis are reported. They are the issue of a first-cousin marriage between Bangladeshi parents. The older boy was born in Bangladesh, the younger in England. A diagnosis of Indian childhood cirrhosis (ICC) was made on the basis of the clinical features and the liver histology. The younger brother represents the first example of this disease in a patient born in the United Kingdom.
