Inflammation of the biliary ductal system (BILE DUCTS); intrahepatic, extrahepatic, or both.
Chronic inflammatory disease of the BILIARY TRACT. It is characterized by fibrosis and hardening of the intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal systems leading to bile duct strictures, CHOLESTASIS, and eventual BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.

Negative conversion of antimitochondrial antibody in primary biliary cirrhosis: a case of autoimmune cholangitis. (1/380)

Autoimmune cholangitis is a clinical constellation of chronic cholestasis, histological changes of chronic nonsuppurative cholangitis and the presence of autoantibodies other than antimitochondrial antibody (AMA). It is uncertain whether this entity is definitely different from AMA positive primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC), though it shows some differences. We report a case of autoimmune cholangitis in a 59-year-old woman, who had been previously diagnosed as AMA-positive PBC associated with rheumatoid arthritis, has been converted to an AMA-negative and anticentromere antibody-positive PBC during follow-up. The response to ursodeoxycholic acid treatment is poor except within the first few months, but prednisolone was dropping the biochemical laboratory data.  (+info)

Obstructive jaundice and acute cholangitis due to papillary stenosis. (2/380)

Papillary stenosis is characterized by fixed fibrosis leading to structural outflow obstruction and it is usually secondary to inflammation and fibrosis from the chronic passage of gallstones, episodes of acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, sclerosing cholangitis, peptic ulcer disease, and cholesterolosis. However, obstructive jaundice with or without acute cholangitis which leads the physician to suspect the presence of malignancy as a cause is a rare manifestation of papillary stenosis. We report here a case of papillary stenosis presenting with obstructive jaundice and acute cholangitis. The lesion was so difficult to exclude the presence of malignancy preoperatively and intraoperatively that a pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy was performed. Histologic examination of the resected specimen revealed fibrosis, adenomatoid ductal hyperplasia, and mild chronic inflammation of the papilla of Vater and distal common bile duct.  (+info)

Active participation of CCR5(+)CD8(+) T lymphocytes in the pathogenesis of liver injury in graft-versus-host disease. (3/380)

We examined the molecular pathogenesis of graft-versus-host disease-associated (GVHD-associated) liver injury in mice, focusing on the role of chemokines. At the second week after cell transfer in the parent-into-F1 model of GVHD, CD8(+) T cells -- especially donor-derived CD8(+) T cells -- infiltrated the liver, causing both portal hepatitis and nonsuppurative destructive cholangitis (NSDC). These migrating cells expressed CCR5. Moreover, macrophage inflammatory protein-1alpha (MIP-1alpha), one of the ligands for CCR5, was selectively expressed on intralobular bile duct epithelial cells, endothelial cells, and infiltrating macrophages and lymphocytes. Administration of anti-CCR5 antibody dramatically reduced the infiltration of CCR5(+)CD8(+) T lymphocytes into the liver, and consequently protected against liver damage in GVHD. The levels of Fas ligand (FasL) mRNA expression in the liver were also decreased by anti-CCR5 antibody treatment. Anti-MIP-1alpha antibody treatment also reduced liver injury. These results suggest that MIP-1alpha-induced migration of CCR5-expressing CD8(+) T cells into the portal areas of the liver plays a significant role in causing liver injury in GVHD; thus, CCR5 and its ligand may be the novel target molecules of therapeutic intervention of hepatic GVHD.  (+info)

Monolobar Caroli's Disease and cholangiocarcinoma. (4/380)

Caroli's Disease (CD) is a rare congenital disorder characterized by cystic dilatation of the intrahepatic bile ducts. This report describes a patient with cholangiocarcinoma arising in the setting of monolobar CD. In spite of detailed investigations including biliary enteric bypass and endoscopic retrograde cholangiography, the diagnosis of mucinous cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) was not made for almost one year. The presentation, diagnosis and treatment of monolobar CD and the association between monolobar CD and biliary tract cancer are discussed. Hepatic resection is the treatment of choice for monolobar CD.  (+info)

Clinical features and management of biliary ascariasis in a non-endemic area. (5/380)

Biliary ascariasis is common in certain geographical areas of the world. In India, it is common in the Kashmir valley and only stray cases have been reported from other parts of the country. Between January 1995 and May 1997, 14 patients with biliary ascariasis were seen at our centre, which is more than 1000 km from the Kashmir valley. The mean (+/- SD) age of the patients was 31.7 (+/- 6.1) years and all were females. None of them had been to a place known to be endemic for biliary ascariasis. Four patients presented with acute cholangitis, eight with acute abdominal pain and vomiting, and the remaining two were diagnosed incidentally during surgery for gallstone disease. Barring these two patients, ultrasound examination of the abdomen diagnosed the condition accurately. In 10 patients, a part of the worm was visible outside the papilla of Vater. The roundworm was caught in a Dormia basket and could be extracted in nine patients. In one patient the worm migrated inside the bile duct while it was being caught in a Dormia basket. In this and two other patients, in whom the worm had migrated completely inside the bile duct, worms were removed with the help of a Dormia basket after endoscopic sphincterotomy. There were no complications of endoscopic therapy. In the two patients in whom biliary ascariasis was detected during surgery, the worms were removed after choledocholithotomy. On a mean follow-up of 13.8 months, only one patient had a recurrence of biliary ascariasis. It is concluded that biliary ascariasis is not an uncommon disease and must be considered as a possibility in patients presenting with acute cholangitis and biliary pain even in a non-endemic area. Ultrasonography is an excellent diagnostic tool and endoscopic management is very effective and safe in the treatment of these patients.  (+info)

Inflammatory cytokines induce DNA damage and inhibit DNA repair in cholangiocarcinoma cells by a nitric oxide-dependent mechanism. (6/380)

Chronic infection and inflammation are risk factors for the development of cholangiocarcinoma, a highly malignant, generally fatal adenocarcinoma originating from biliary epithelia. However, the link between inflammation and carcinogenesis in these disorders is obscure. Because nitric oxide (NO) is generated in inflamed tissues by inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and because DNA repair proteins are potentially susceptible to NO-mediated nitrosylation, we formulated the hypothesis that inflammatory cytokines induce iNOS and sufficient NO to inhibit DNA repair enzymes leading to the development and progression of cholangiocarcinoma. iNOS and nitrotyrosine were demonstrated in 18/18 cholangiocarcinoma specimens. Furthermore, iNOS and NO generation could be induced in vitro by inflammatory cytokines (mixture of interleukin-1beta, IFN-gamma, and tumor necrosis factor alpha) in three human cholangiocarcinoma cell lines. NO-dependent DNA damage as assessed by the comet assay was demonstrated during exposure of the three cholangiocarcinoma cell lines to cytokines. Moreover, global DNA repair activity was inhibited by 70% by a NO-dependent process after exposure of cells to cytokines. Our data indicate that activation of iNOS and excess production of NO in response to inflammatory cytokines cause DNA damage and inhibit DNA repair proteins. NO inactivation of DNA repair enzymes may provide a link between inflammation and the initiation, promotion, and/or progression of cholangiocarcinoma.  (+info)

Tissue plasminogen activator and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 in human choledochal bile. (7/380)

Fibrinolytic properties have been detected in animal and human gallbladder (GB) bile. Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) has been reported in greater concentration in GB stone bile and may be a nucleating factor in the pathogenesis of GB stone formation. It is unknown whether or not human choledochal bile has similar properties, which could have a role in choledocholithiasis. The aims of this study were to determine the presence of fibrinolytic properties of human choledochal bile and to compare those properties among normal, acalculous, and calculous-infected choledochal bile. Tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and PAI-1 of choledochal bile were measured by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay in patients with cholangitis due to acalculous bile duct obstructions (n = 9), choledocholithiasis with cholangitis (n = 20), and normal bile (n = 7). The t-PA concentration of choledochal bile was no different among the three groups (acalculous-infected bile, median 4.61 ng/ml, and calculous-infected bile, 4.61 ng/ml, versus normal bile, 7.33 ng/ml). PAI-1 was detected in choledochal bile in significantly greater concentrations in patients with acalculous cholangitis due to bile duct obstructions and choledocholithiasis with cholangitis (acalculous-infected bile, median 0.36 ng/ml, and calculous-infected bile, 0.1 ng/ml, versus normal bile, 0.02 ng/ml, p < 0.05), but the bile concentration of PAI-1 was no different between the acalculous and calculous-infected choledochal bile. Human choledochal bile possesses t-PA and PAI-1. PAI-1 was present in greater concentrations in both acalculous and calculous-infected choledochal bile. Increased levels of PAI-1 may be an epiphenomenon of cholangitis rather than a factor in the pathogenesis of choledocholithiasis.  (+info)

Enterococcus hirae enteropathy with ascending cholangitis and pancreatitis in a kitten. (8/380)

A 2-month-old female Persian cat that had been showing episodes of anorexia and diarrhea for the previous 4 weeks was presented in shock and died 2 days later. Numerous Gram-positive cocci were located along the brush border of small intestinal villi, without significant inflammatory infiltration. Similar bacteria were present within hepatic bile ducts and pancreatic ducts and were associated with suppurative inflammation and exfoliation of epithelial cells. Culture of the liver and lung yielded bacteria identified as Enterococcus hirae. Fecal culture from an asymptomatic adult female from the same cattery also yielded large numbers of E. hirae. To our knowledge, this is the first report of E. hirae enteropathy in a cat and the first report of ascending cholangitis and ductal pancreatitis caused by an Enterococcus spp.  (+info)

AIM: Autoimmune cholangitis has been proposed as a separate disease entity from primary biliary cirrhosis without serum antimitochondrial antibodies. The ultimate answer to the question of whether autoimmune cholangitis and primary biliary cirrhosis are distinct will require detailed comparison of aetiologic factors and pathogenic mechanisms. METHODS AND RESULTS: Two families are described each of which has one member with classical antimitochondrial antibody positive biopsy-proven primary biliary cirrhosis and a first degree relative with antimitochondrial antibody negative but antinuclear antibody positive autoimmune cholangitis (biopsy proven in one case). Study of such families should allow analysis of the contribution of shared genetic risk factors versus varying environmental triggering mechanisms to disease pathogenesis. CONCLUSIONS: We suggest a European registry of families, such as the two described, which are rare within one centre, to facilitate elucidation of pathogenetic factors.
Recurrent pyogenic cholangitis is characterised by recurrent bouts of bacterial cholangitis with primary hepatolithiasis. It is prevalent in Hong Kong and East Asian including China, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines. Apart from affecting humans it is also a common disease in cats. Presentation can be atypical with no pain or fever especially in the elderly population. Hepatolithiasis may present with biliary colic, acute pancreatitis, obstructive jaundice and less commonly, hepatomegaly and abnormal liver chemistry. Chronic biliary obstruction may cause jaundice, pruritus, liver abscess, and liver atrophy, mostly affecting the left lobe and the left lateral segment of the liver, and eventually secondary biliary cirrhosis and cholangiocarcinoma. Suppurative cholangitis, liver abscess, empyema of the gallbladder, acute pancreatitis, thrombophlebitis of hepatic or portal veins, and septicemia are acute complications of the disease, to which patients may succumb during the acute ...
The definitive treatment for cholangitis is relief of the underlying biliary obstruction.[1] This is usually deferred until 24-48 hours after admission, when the patient is stable and has shown some improvement with antibiotics, but may need to happen as an emergency in case of ongoing deterioration despite adequate treatment,[1] or if antibiotics are not effective in reducing the signs of infection (which happens in 15% of cases).[2][3] Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is the most common approach in unblocking the bile duct. This involves endoscopy (passing a fiberoptic tube through the stomach into the duodenum), identification of the ampulla of Vater and insertion of a small tube into the bile duct. A sphincterotomy (making a cut in the sphincter of Oddi) is typically done to ease the flow of bile from the duct and to allow insertion of instruments to extract gallstones that are obstructing the common bile duct; alternatively or additionally, the common bile duct orifice ...

Bile duct related cancer is a condition quite commonly seen among Asians. Predisposing conditions for primary bile duct cancer include recurrent infections and autoimmune diseases such as recurrent pyogenic cholangitis (RPC) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) as well as congenital problem such as choledochal cyst. Peri-ampullary tumour, pancreatic tumour and metastatic tumours with bile duct compression are other causes of bile duct obstruction. As many of these tumours are discovered at a late stage, curative treatment is usually not feasible. Palliative endoscopic stenting of the obstructed biliary system remains the treatment of choice for the majority.. The main problem with endoscopic stenting of the biliary system is the short stent patency period. There are some reports on modifications to plastic biliary stenting method in recent years including changes in stent designs, use of a different material or coating, administrating prophylactic antibiotics and the use of special drugs. ...

Cholangitis (say koh-lan-JY-tus) is an infection in the tubes that carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder and the small intestine. The gallbladder stores bile, which helps the body digest food. Sometimes a gallstone gets stuck in the tubes, and bile cannot get out. This can lead to an infection. If the infection is not treated, it may damage your liver or spread through your blood vessels. Other problems also can cause a blockage of the bile tubes and lead to cholangitis.. You will take antibiotics to treat the infection. You may also need a special test to look for and remove a gallstone stuck in the bile tubes. When the infection is gone, you may need surgery to take out your gallbladder. This will prevent more gallstones and another infection.. ...

Autoimmune sclerosing cholangitis is an overlap syndrome characterized by features of both autoimmune hepatitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis, the latter usually involving the large bile ducts. Autoimmune sclerosing cholangitis occurs more often in children than in adults and is frequently associated with inflammatory bowel disease, predominantly ulcerative colitis. We report a unique case of a 10-year-old Danish boy with severe small duct autoimmune sclerosing cholangitis and synchronic Crohn colitis. He was referred with a history of weight loss, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea. Biochemical anomalies included elevated alanine aminotransferase, γ-glutamyl transferase and immunoglobulin G levels and the presence of smooth muscle antibodies and perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies but normal alkaline phosphatase. Liver biopsy specimen revealed features of both autoimmune hepatitis and sclerosing cholangitis, the latter characterized by acute, hyperplastic and destructive

Multifocal strictures involving both intra- and extra-hepatic bile ducts were most common in PSC; they were diffusely distributed, short, and annular, alternating with normal or slightly dilated segments to produce a beaded appearance. Very short, band-like strictures occurred in 18 patients; 9 also had diverticulum-like outpouchings. Fourteen patients had diverticula without band strictures. Both findings appear to be specific for PSC. Inflammatory bowel disease was seen in 57 patients (66%), who could not be distinguished cholangiographically from other PSC patients. Of 40 patients with adequate ...

Background & Aims: The importance of genetic factors for the development of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is incompletely understood. This study assessed the risk of PSC and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) among first-degree relatives of patients with PSC, compared with the first-degree relatives of a cohort without PSC. Methods: Subjects from the national Swedish cohort of PSC patients (n = 678) were matched for date of birth, sex, and region to up to 10 subjects without a diagnosis of PSC (n = 6347). Linkage through general population registers identified first-degree relatives of subjects in both the PSC and comparison cohorts (n = 34,092). Diagnoses among first-degree relatives were identified by using the Inpatient Register. Results: The risk of cholangitis was statistically significantly increased in offspring, siblings, and parents of the PSC patient cohort, compared with relatives of the comparison cohort, with the hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals, 11.5 (1.6-84.4), 11.1 ...

BACKGROUND AND AIM This thesis includes two studies conducted in a paediatric and two studies conducted in an adult primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) population. The common denominator was endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC) with brush cytology that was performed in all patients. The aims were to: i) identify the possible environmental risk factors (Study I) and report the long-term outcome (Study II) of paediatric-onset PSC, ii) compare ERC and magnetic resonance imaging with cholangiopancreatography (MRI-MRCP) in the evaluation of disease activity and severity of patients with PSC (Study III) and evaluate the role of ERC with brush cytology as screening for cholangiocarcinoma (CC) in patients with PSC (Study IV). MATERIAL AND METHODS PSC was diagnosed, followed-up (or both) in Helsinki University Hospital (HUH). Study I: 71 patients with a new diagnosis of paediatric-onset (age , 16 years) PSC, autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) or PSC-AIH (togheter autoimmune liver diseases or AILD) ...
MRCP. Findings:. Multiplanar multisequence imaging of the pancreas and biliary tree. No prior imaging is available for comparison.. A 12 mm irregular stricture in mid common bile duct is associated with mild proximal dilation (8 mm). A 1.5 cm stricture is seen in the common hepatic duct, extending from the left and right duct confluence to the level of the cystic duct insertion.. The intra hepatic ducts have a beaded appearance, consistent with multiple regions of stricturing and dilation. Intrahepatic duct dilation is most severe in segments 2 and 3, which are atrophic, suggesting a dominant stricture. Segment 5 ducts are also more prominent that other segments, though less so than segments 2/3.. The pancreas and pancreatic duct are unremarkable. Normal appearance to the spleen, adrenals and kidneys (aside from a simple cyst on the left).. Conclusion:. Multiple intra- and extra-hepatic strictures are consistent with primary sclerosing cholangitis.. ...
Steroid responsive biliary strictures in patients fulfilling criteria for primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) have been reported. The clinical course and response to therapy in patients with PSC with elevated immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) levels has not been investigated previously. Patients with PSC were screened for IgG4-related biliary disease during 2006 to 2008 and data were collected prospectively. A total of 33 out of 285 (12%) patients with PSC (18 males) had elevated IgG4 (|140mg/dL) with a median age of 46 years (interquartile range 29-60); 24 could be evaluated. All patients had both intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary strictures. Pancreatic disorders were found in 4 (17%), and 11 of 24 (46%) presented with jaundice; 8 of 24 (33%) received biliary stenting for a median time of 4 months (0-6). Liver cirrhosis was diagnosed in 12 of the 24 (50%). Overall, 18 patients were treated with corticosteroids and 6 patients managed conservatively. Nine of 10 patients with elevated bilirubin had
In primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), the bile ducts inside and outside the liver become inflamed and scarred. As the scarring increases, the ducts become congested and blocked. The ducts are important because they carry bile out of the liver. Bile is a liquid that helps break down fat in food. If the ducts are blocked, bile builds up in the liver and damages liver cells. Blockage can also cause infection with fever and pain in the right upper abdomen. Eventually, PSC can cause cirrhosis and liver failure. It may also cause bile duct cancer, or cholangiocarcinoma.

Obeticholic acid (OCA), a potent farnesoid X receptor agonist, was studied as monotherapy in an international, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 2 study in patients with primary biliary cholangitis who were then followed for up to 6 years. The goals of the study were to assess the benefit of OCA in the absence of ursodeoxycholic acid, which is relevant for patients who are intolerant of ursodeoxycholic acid and at higher risk of disease progression. Patients were randomized and dosed with placebo (n = 23), OCA 10 mg (n = 20), or OCA 50 mg (n = 16) given as monotherapy once daily for 3months (1 randomized patient withdrew prior to dosing). The primary endpoint was the percent change in alkaline phosphatase from baseline to the end of the double-blind phase of the study. Secondary and exploratory endpoints included change from baseline to month 3/early termination in markers of cholestasis, hepatocellular injury, and farnesoid X receptor activation. Efficacy and safety continue to ...
Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) is a chronic autoimmune liver disease. It continues to have a burden of morbidity and mortality that spans both the consequences of a sometimes progressive biliary injury, alongside a symptom profile notably encompassing pruritus, sicca complex, fatigue, abdominal discomfort and arthralgias/bone pain. UK-PBC and the BSG have partnered to develop a comprehensive guideline document to provide detailed advice and recommendations on the best approaches to management of disease. A series of recommendations and audit standards are proposed, to ensure that patients are offered timely licenced therapy (ursodeoxycholic acid [UDCA], obeticholic acid [OCA]) in addition to actively managed for symptoms, as well as complications of progressive liver disease.. The guidelines have now been submitted, and we are awaiting publication. In the meantime, we have summarised the key recommendations below: ...
