What are the signs and symptoms of Rotor syndrome?

Jaundice is usually the only symptom of Rotor syndrome. Some people with Rotor syndrome develop nonspecific symptoms. Unlike other causes of hyperbilirubinemia, itchiness (pruritus) is not a symptom of Rotor syndrome. Rotor syndrome is not associated with an increased risk for liver scarring (liver fibrosis or cirrhosis).[1]
