What is Cholangitis?

Description of the disease

Cholangitis is inflammation of the bile ducts, which can lead to serious complications such as gallstone disease and liver cirrhosis.


  • Acute cholangitis
  • Chronic cholangitis


Symptoms of cholangitis may include pain in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen, jaundice, fever, nausea, and vomiting.


Cholangitis can be caused by bacterial infection, blockage of the bile ducts, autoimmune diseases, or hepatitis.


Diagnosis of cholangitis includes blood tests, ultrasound studies, computed tomography, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.


Treatment of cholangitis may include the use of antibiotics, drainage of the bile ducts, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and in some cases surgical intervention.


Prevention of cholangitis includes maintaining a healthy lifestyle, preventing infections, and regular medical check-ups.


For the diagnosis and treatment of cholangitis, consultation with a gastroenterologist or hepatologist is required.
