 # Conjugated and unconjugated bilirubins are increased in: 
A. Prehepatic jaundice 
B. Hepatocellular jaundice 
C. Posthepatic jaundice
D. Hemolytic jaundice 



The correct answer is B. Hepatocellular jaundice.

In hepatocellular jaundice, bilirubin transport across the hepatocytes may be impaired at any point between uptake of unconjugated bilirubin into the cells and transport of conjugated bilirubin into the canaliculi. So the concentrations of both conjugated and unconjugated bilirubin in the blood increase.
