Immunoglobulin G4-related sclerosing disease of the paranasal sinuses: A case report and literature review.

Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) related sclerosing disease (RSD) of the paranasal sinuses is a rare lesion of dense lymphoplasmacytic tissue, with a high proportion of IgG4+ plasma cells. We presented a rare...

Imaging of autoimmune biliary disease.

Autoimmune biliary diseases are poorly understood but important to recognize. Initially, autoimmune biliary diseases are asymptomatic but may lead to progressive cholestasis with associated ductopenia...

Reversal of cardiac remodeling after treatment of IgG4 related cholangitis - Possibility of IgG4-related heart disease?

 Alkaline phosphatase normalization is a biomarker of improved survival in primary sclerosing cholangitis.

 Introduction. Recent studies suggest that serum alkaline phosphatase may represent a prognostic biomarker in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis. However, this association remains poorly un...

Secondary sclerosing cholangitis in a critically ill patient.

Critically ill patients are commonly imaged for liver dysfunction. An often fatal condition, secondary sclerosing cholangitis, is an important and likely under-recognized hepatic condition in these pa...

Bile Usefulness for Detecting IgG4-related Sclerosing Cholangitis

Immunoglobulin G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is an uncommon inflammatory disorder that may affect multiple organ systems, including the biliary tree. IgG4-sclerosing cholangitis (IgG4-SC) c...

Development of a Patient-Reported Outcome Measure to Assess Symptoms in Patients With Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC)

The objectives of this qualitative study are to elicit concepts about symptoms that are important to patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC), as well as the key impacts of sympt...

Trial of High-dose Urso in Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis

This is a multicenter, randomized, controlled trial of high dose ursodiol versus placebo for patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). The average duration of follow-up will be ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Chronic inflammatory disease of the BILIARY TRACT. It is characterized by fibrosis and hardening of the intrahepatic and extrahepatic biliary ductal systems leading to bile duct strictures, CHOLESTASIS, and eventual BILIARY CIRRHOSIS.

Inflammation of the biliary ductal system (BILE DUCTS); intrahepatic, extrahepatic, or both.

Impairment of bile flow due to injury to the HEPATOCYTES; BILE CANALICULI; or the intrahepatic bile ducts (BILE DUCTS, INTRAHEPATIC).

The use of one's knowledge in a particular profession. It includes, in the case of the field of biomedicine, professional activities related to health care and the actual performance of the duties related to the provision of health care.

FIBROSIS of the hepatic parenchyma due to obstruction of BILE flow (CHOLESTASIS) in the intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts (BILE DUCTS, INTRAHEPATIC; BILE DUCTS, EXTRAHEPATIC). Primary biliary cirrhosis involves the destruction of small intra-hepatic bile ducts and bile secretion. Secondary biliary cirrhosis is produced by prolonged obstruction of large intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts from a variety of causes.
