Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis - HIV: health and medical information about HIV and AIDS (612 words)
Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a chronic disorder of the liver in which the bile ducts outside the liver (the extrahepatic bile ducts) and often the bile ducts inside the liver (the intrahepatic bile ducts) become inflamed, thickened (sclerotic), narrowed, and finally obstructed.
The cause of sclerosing cholangitis is not known.
The diagnosis of PSC is suspected from the symptoms and signs and abnormal laboratory tests and then is confirmed by demonstration of thickened bile ducts using a special radiological test called cholangiography in which dye is injected into the bile ducts and then x-rays are taken of the injected ducts.
