Oriental cholangiohepatitis (recurrent pyogenic cholangitis): a case series from the Netherlands and brief review of the literature.

Neth J Med 2016 Nov;74(9):401-405

Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Oriental cholangiohepatitis is a condition occurring in the Asian population, characterised by recurrent bacterial cholangitis and presence of calculi within the intrahepatic bile ducts, biliary strictures and an increased risk for cholangiocarcinoma. It is an uncommon disease in the West that may not always be considered. The therapeutic approach is multidisciplinary and highly individual, and includes antibiotic therapy, endoscopic and percutaneous biliary drainage with stone removal and dilation of strictures, and in selected cases surgical resection of affected liver segments.

Recurrent pyogenic cholangitis: a review of imaging findings and clinical management.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2017 01;42(1):46-56

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore, Singapore.

Recurrent pyogenic cholangitis (RPC) is an infective process involving the biliary tree typified by pigmented intraductal calculi with dilatation of the intra- and extrahepatic biliary tree. Previously endemic to South-east Asia, RPC can now be seen in Western countries with the increasing access to international travel and immigration. Affected patients are often plagued by recurrent bouts of cholangitis, and commonly suffer from complications such as abscess formation and biliary strictures. Read More

Mimics of cholangiocarcinoma: spectrum of disease.

Radiographics 2008 Jul-Aug;28(4):1115-29

Department of Radiology, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, St Louis, MO, USA.

Cholangiocarcinoma is the second most common primary malignant hepatobiliary neoplasm, accounting for approximately 15% of liver cancers. Diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma is challenging and the prognosis is uniformly poor, with recurrence rates of 60%-90% after surgical resection. A wide spectrum of neoplastic and nonneoplastic conditions of the biliary tract may masquerade as cholangiocarcinoma, adding to the complexity of management in patients suspected to have cholangiocarcinoma.

Parasitic infestations of the biliary tract.

Curr Gastroenterol Rep 2007 Apr;9(2):156-64

Department of Gastroenterology, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, 1041, Sector 24-B, Chandigarh 160 023, India.

Parasitic infestations of the biliary tract are a common cause of biliary obstruction in tropical countries and can lead to such serious complications as cholangitis and cholangiocarcinoma. Endoscopic therapy has helped in the management of biliary complications caused by these parasites. Ascaris lumbricoides organisms, which normally reside in the jejunum, are actively motile and can invade the papilla, thus migrating into the bile duct and causing biliary obstruction. Read More

Unusual cases of acute cholecystitis and cholangitis: Tokyo Guidelines.

J Hepatobiliary Pancreat Surg 2007 30;14(1):98-113. Epub 2007 Jan 30.

Department of Surgery, Teikyo University Chiba Medical Center, 3426-3 Anesaki, Ichihara, Chiba, 299-0111, Japan.

Unusual cases of acute cholecystitis and cholangitis include (1) pediatric biliary tract infections, (2) geriatric biliary tract infections, (3) acalculous cholecystitis, (4) acute and intrahepatic cholangitis accompanying hepatolithiasis (5) acute biliary tract infection accompanying malignant pancreatic-biliary tumor, (6) postoperative biliary tract infection, (7) acute biliary tract infection accompanying congenital biliary dilatation and pancreaticobiliary maljunction, and (8) primary sclerosing cholangitis. Pediatric biliary tract infection is characterized by great differences in causes from those of adult acute biliary tract infection, and severe cases should be immediately referred to a specialist pediatric surgical unit. Because biliary tract infection in elderly patients, who often have serious systemic conditions and complications, is likely to progress to a serious form, early surgery or biliary drainage is necessary.

From the RSNA refresher courses: imaging evaluation for acute pain in the right upper quadrant.

Radiographics 2004 Jul-Aug;24(4):1117-35

Department of Medical Imaging, University Health Network and Mount Sinai Hospital, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Acute cholecystitis is the most common cause of acute pain in the right upper quadrant (RUQ), and urgent surgical removal of the gallbladder is the treatment of choice for uncomplicated disease. However, cross-sectional imaging is essential because more than one-third of patients with acute RUQ pain do not have acute cholecystitis. In addition, patients with complications of acute cholecystitis, such as perforation, are often best treated with supportive measures initially and elective cholecystectomy at a later date.

Radiologic spectrum of cholangiocarcinoma: emphasis on unusual manifestations and differential diagnoses.

Radiographics 2001 Oct;21 Spec No:S97-S116

Department of Radiology and Gastrointestinal Center, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, 50 Ilwon-Dong, Kangnam-Ku, Seoul 135-710, South Korea.

Most cholangiocarcinomas are ductal adenocarcinomas that arise from both intra- and extrahepatic bile duct epithelium, and their typical growth pattern can be classified as exophytic, infiltrative, polypoid, or a combination of these. Those of unusual histologic type (eg, mucin-hypersecreting cholangiocarcinoma, squamous adenocarcinoma, biliary cystadenocarcinoma, and mucinous carcinoma) show a growth pattern different from that of the typical ones (ie, ductal). Cholangiocarcinomas frequently develop in patients with any of a variety of preexisting bile duct diseases, some of which are considered precursors of cholangiocarcinoma (eg, biliary lithiasis, clonorchiasis, recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, and primary sclerosing cholangitis).

Benign biliary strictures associated with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis: treatment with expandable metallic stents.

AJR Am J Roentgenol 1997 Dec;169(6):1523-7

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Songpa-gu, Seoul, South Korea.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the long-term effectiveness of expandable metallic stents in benign biliary strictures associated with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis and the differences in primary patency of the various types of stents deployed.

Subjects And Methods: During a 20-month period, 26 metallic stents (19 Gianturco-Rosch Z stents and seven Strecker stents) were used to treat benign biliary strictures associated with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis in 23 patients (11 men and 12 women; mean age, 42 years; range, 30-78 years). Insertion routes were percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage tracts for 16 stents, T-tube tracts for seven stents, and retrograde endoscopic routes for three stents. Read More

Recurrent pyogenic cholangitis in Asian immigrants to the United States: natural history and role of therapeutic ERCP.

Dig Dis Sci 1997 Apr;42(4):865-71

San Francisco General Hospital, Department of Medicine, University of California, 94110, USA.

We reviewed the clinical presentation, cholangiographic features, and long-term outcomes in 41 patients with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis (RPC, "Oriental" cholangiohepatitis) who underwent ERCP at our institution, comparing patients who were initially managed with therapeutic ERCP, immediate hepatobiliary surgery, and no intervention. Patients undergoing only diagnostic ERCP had recurrent symptoms in 62% of cases, twice as often as patients managed initially by therapeutic ERCP or immediate surgery. These former patients required subsequent surgery more often than patients in the latter two groups. Read More

Modern imaging in the evaluation of hepatolithiasis.

Hepatogastroenterology 1997 Mar-Apr;44(14):358-69

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong.

Hepatolithiasis is a primary disease of the biliary ducts, presenting with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, complicated by parenchymal infection, obstructive cholangiopathy and subsequent parenchymal destruction. Cholangiocarcinoma is a rarer complication. Modern imaging aims at accurate delineation of biliary ducts and liver parenchyma. Read More

CT identification of ascaris in the biliary tract.

Abdom Imaging 1995 Jul-Aug;20(4):317-9

Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil.

Ascariasis is one of the most common helminthic diseases worldwide. The presence of this worm in the biliary tree causes biliary colic, recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, pancreatitis, hepatic abscesses, and septicemia. The diagnosis of biliary ascariasis is usually made by ultrasound (US). Read More

Clin Imaging 1995 Jan-Mar;19(1):43-6

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Kyung Hee University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver is characterized by a well-circumscribed, encapsulated inflammatory mass consisting of inflammatory cell infiltration and fibrosis. We report the radiological findings of inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver in two patients with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, showing a poorly defined, heterogeneous, hypovascular mass, mimicking a tumor. Radiological findings are not characteristic and definitive diagnosis requires needle biopsy or surgery. Read More

Serial cholangiographic appearances in recurrent pyogenic cholangitis.

Gastrointest Endosc 1993 Sep-Oct;39(5):674-9

Institute of Medical Sciences, Kashmir, India.

From December 1982 to December 1991, cholangiograms were obtained in 227 patients with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis. Cholangiographic abnormalities included biliary dilation, calculi, sludge, excessive branching, and arrowhead formation of intrahepatic ducts and biliary strictures. In 21 patients, previous evidence of biliary ascariasis was seen. Read More

Oddi's sphincter motor activity in patients with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis.

Hepatology 1993 Jan;17(1):53-8

Department of Gastroenterology, Institute of Medical Sciences, Srinagar, India.

Oddi's sphincter motor activity was studied in 15 healthy subjects and 15 patients with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis. No significant difference was found in the common bile duct pressures, the Oddi's sphincter basal pressures or the amplitude, frequency and duration of phasic contractions between the controls and patients. However, a significant difference was found in the percentage of antegrade and retrograde phasic wave sequences between the two groups. Read More

Recurrent pyogenic cholangitis: current management.

World J Surg 1991 Mar-Apr;15(2):248-53

Department of Surgery, University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital.

Successful treatment of recurrent pyogenic cholangitis depends on the ability to delineate the pathology of the entire biliary system and to eradicate all stones, strictures, and destroyed liver segments. Recent advances in imaging techniques and stone fragmentation technology have been applied successfully in the management of this condition. Apart from direct cholangiography and ultrasonography, valuable information can be obtained from computed tomography which is particularly helpful in patients with recurrent disease after previous biliary surgery.

Radiologic findings of clonorchiasis.

Authors:
J H Lim

AJR Am J Roentgenol 1990 Nov;155(5):1001-8

Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Kyung Hee University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Clonorchiasis is a trematodiasis caused by chronic infestation of liver flukes, Clonorchis sinensis. The adult flukes reside in the medium-sized and small intrahepatic bile ducts and, occasionally, in the extrahepatic bile ducts, gallbladder, and pancreatic duct. The result is mechanical obstruction, inflammatory reaction, adenomatous hyperplasia, and periductal fibrosis. Read More

Role of computed tomography in the management of recurrent pyogenic cholangitis.

Aust N Z J Surg 1990 Aug;60(8):599-605

Department of Surgery, University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital.

A retrospective analysis was performed to define the indications and usefulness of computed tomography (CT) in the management of 62 patients with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis. When performed in 18 patients in the acute phase for persistent fever inexplicable by ultrasonography and cholangiography, CT scans identified the cause of sepsis to be liver abscesses (n = 7), impacted stones in left lateral segments (n = 3) and right posterior inferior duct (n = 1). When performed in 44 patients during remission, CT scans detected impacted intrahepatic stones as the cause of non-opacification of segmental bile ducts on cholangiograms (n = 15), demonstrated liver volume changes (segmental atrophy, n = 31; hypertrophy, n = 5), differentiated intrahepatic stones from pneumobilia (n = 5) and revealed stones in segregated intrahepatic bile ducts (n = 4).

Recurrent pyogenic cholangiohepatitis.

Ann R Coll Surg Engl 1989 Nov;71(6):387-9

University Department of Surgery, St James's University Hospital, Leeds.

Three cases of complicated oriental cholangiohepatitis are described in patients of Asian origin. The development of high biliary strictures in two patients required liver resection; in the third patient the process was complicated by a presumed bile duct malignancy. Oriental cholangiohepatitis may be expected in UK surgical practice given the increased frequency of migration from Asia. Read More

Evaluation of recurrent pyogenic cholangitis with CT: analysis of 50 patients.

Radiology 1989 Jan;170(1 Pt 1):165-9

Diagnostic Radiology Division, University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital.

The use of computed tomography (CT) was investigated in 50 patients with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis, 22 of whom had undergone prior choledochoenterostomy or sphincteroplasty. A spectrum of pathologic features was noted, including intrahepatic ductal dilatation (n = 50), common duct dilatation (n = 34), strictures (n = 11), intrahepatic calculi (n = 37), common duct calculi (n = 15), pneumobilia (n = 26), segmental atrophy (n = 18), and splenomegaly (n = 7). Unilobar disease existed in 14 patients. Read More

[A combined surgical and interventional-radiologic procedure in bile duct obstructions].

Helv Chir Acta 1989 Jan;55(5):583-91

Surgery for biliary obstruction may be complicated by the presence of intrahepatic stones and, in difficult anastomoses, by the possibility of recurrent stricture formation. In order to decrease the need for further operation, the first surgical repair in selected cases should allow access for later radiological intervention. Primary operation consists of biliary digestive anastomosis using established techniques with a Roux-en-Y-loop. Read More
