The changing faces of cholangitis.

F1000Res 2016 17;5. Epub 2016 Jun 17.

Department of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology , University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA, USA.

A variety of diseases are included under the umbrella term 'cholangitis', including hepatobiliary diseases with an autoimmune pathogenesis (such as primary sclerosing cholangitis, primary biliary cholangitis, and IgG4-associated sclerosing cholangitis) and disease processes associated with intraductal stones and infectious etiologies (such as ascending bacterial cholangitis, recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, and liver fluke-associated cholangitis). Recent advances in the pathophysiologic bases of these disorders, particularly with respect to the autoimmune variety, are allowing improved diagnosis and prognostication as well as providing the opportunity to refine and re-imagine treatment modalities. The aim of this review is to highlight selected advances in cholangitis research that point to novel insights into the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of this diverse array of disorders.

Recurrent pyogenic cholangitis as a differential diagnosis in biliary tract diseases.

Z Gastroenterol 2015 Sep 14;53(9):1087-90. Epub 2015 Sep 14.

Innere Medizin I, Universitätsklinikum Tübingen, Germany.

Recurrent Pyogenic Cholangitis (RPC) or Primary Hepatolithiasis is a common disease of the biliary tract in Asia, whereas it is usually not seen in Europeans. With increasing global mobility, the disease will be encountered in Europe more frequently, too. It should therefore be considered as a differential diagnosis in patients from endemic countries with recurrent symptoms of cholestasis/cholangitis and bile duct dilations, strictures and hepatolithiasis.

[An Asian man with recurrent abdominal pain].

Gastroenterol Hepatol 2012 Oct 30;35(8):572-6. Epub 2012 May 30.

Unidad Clínica de Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitario San Cecilio, Granada, España.

Recurrent pyogenic cholangitis (RPC), or oriental cholangiohepatitis, is characterized by intrabiliary pigment stone formation, whose main manifestation consists of recurrent episodes of cholangitis, although other biliopancreatic complications can also occur. RPC develops mainly in Asian patients, in whom this entity is one of the main causes of acute abdominal pain. The differential diagnosis should be established with all other entities associated with intrahepatic stone formation, which is more common in Asian countries compared with the predominance of gallstone formation in the West.

Primary hepatolithiasis, recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, and oriental cholangiohepatitis: a tale of 3 countries.

Adv Anat Pathol 2011 Jul;18(4):318-28

Department of Pathology, Caritas Medical Centre, Hong Kong, China.

Primary hepatolithiasis (HL), recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, and oriental cholangiohepatitis are terms commonly used in Japan, Hong Kong, and Korea respectively, and describing the different aspects of the same disease, with "HL" indicating the pathologic changes, "recurrent pyogenic cholangitis" emphasizing the clinical presentation and suppurative inflammation, and "oriental cholangiohepatitis" highlighting its ethnic preference and mysterious nature. HL is predominantly a disease of the far east and shows great regional differences in the incidence and the type of intrahepatic stones. Pathologically, it is characterized by pigmented calcium bilirubinate stones within dilated intrahepatic bile ducts featuring chronic inflammation, mural fibrosis, and proliferation of peribiliary glands, without extrahepatic biliary obstruction.

MRI of oriental cholangiohepatitis.

Clin Radiol 2011 Feb 15;66(2):158-63. Epub 2010 Oct 15.

Department of Radiodiagnosis and Imaging, Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Srinagar, India.

Oriental cholangiohepatitis (OCH) also called recurrent pyogenic cholangitis is characterized by intrahepatic duct calculi, strictures, and recurrent infections. In turn cholangitis can result in multiple hepatic abscesses, further biliary strictures, and in severe cases, progressive hepatic parenchymal destruction, cirrhosis, and portal hypertension. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) and conventional T1-weighted (T1W) and T2-weighted (T2W) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings have been described in patients with OCH.

An immunohistochemical profile of the so-called bile duct adenoma: clues to pathogenesis.

Am J Surg Pathol 2010 Sep;34(9):1312-8

Department of Medicine, Melbourne University Medical School Building, Western Hospital, Footscray, Victoria, Australia.

The so-called bile duct adenoma and peribiliary glands are characterized by the expression of two foregut antigens (designated D10 and 1F6) and secretion of acid mucin. On account of this similarity in phenotype and their frequent close association with a large caliber bile duct, it was earlier suggested that bile duct adenoma represent a peribiliary gland hamartoma. Here, we compare the expression of 13 tissue antigens in bile duct adenomas, other benign bile duct lesions, and various foregut-derived tissues, to further investigate the bile duct adenoma phenotype and pathogenesis.
