Abstract

A large number of hepatobiliary abnormalities have? been described in association with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) including primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), pericholangitis, chronic hepatitis, cryptogenic cirrhosis, cholangiocarcinoma, and cholelithiasis. PSC is the most common of these hepatobiliary diseases. This high degree of association with IBD suggests acommon pathogenic mechanism; however, no causal relationship has been established between the two conditions. Medical therapy has not proven successful in slowing disease progression or prolonging survival. Endoscopic manipulation is recommended for treating complications of recurrent cholangitis or worsening jaundice in the setting of a dominant stricture, but endoscopicapproaches have not been shown to improve survival or decrease the need for liver transplantation.
