Definitions of Dubin-Johnson Syndrome:

A benign, autosomally recessive inherited hyperbilirubinemia characterized by the presence of a dark pigment in the centrilobular region of the liver cells. There is a functional defect in biliary excretion of bilirubin, cholephilic dyes, and porphyrins. Affected persons may be asymptomatic or have vague constitutional or gastrointestinal symptoms. The liver may be slightly enlarged, and oral and intravenous cholangiography fails to visualize the biliary tract. - (Source - Diseases Database)

Dubin-Johnson Syndrome is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Dubin-Johnson Syndrome, or a subtype of Dubin-Johnson Syndrome, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
