lilyo  Cholestasis will present with elevated conjugated bilirubin, Alkaline phosphatase, GGT. Depending on the cause for cholestasis it can present with pale stools and dark urine. This patient has cholestasis due to choledocolithiasis. Look at FA 2019 page 390. +  
sars  From what I understand, this could be acute cholangitis (inflammation of the bile duct-charcot triad-hypotension, RUQ pain, jaundice). Biggest risk factor for this is choledocholithiasis. Damage to bile ducts releases ALP and GGT. Thanks +
