  Primary sclerosing cholangitis is a condition that affects the bile ducts. These ducts carry bile (a fluid that helps to digest fats) from the liver, where bile is produced, to the gallbladder, where it is stored, and to the small intestine, where it aids in digestion. Primary sclerosing cholangitis occurs because of inflammation in the bile ducts (cholangitis) that leads to scarring. Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is a chronic liver disease where inflammation and fibrosis lead to multifocal biliary strictures. The close association with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a hallmark of the condition, with IBD present in the majority of patients ()., Download: Download high-res image (KB) Download: Download full-size imageCited by:
