Background: The diagnosis of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is reached by typical cholangiographic findings and liver biopsy. The characteristic cholangiographic abnormalities consist of multifocal strictures and dilatations in the intrahepatic and/or extrahepatic bile ducts. Patients may develop cirrhosis and portal hypertension. Endoscopy may reveal esophageal/gastric varices and portal hypertensive gastropathy.
