Avinash Bardia, Santosh K. Tiwari, G. Sivaram, Farha Anjum, Mohammed Aejaz Habeeb, Aleem Ahmed Khan.


Primary sclerosing cholangitis and ulcerative colitis are caused by progressive inflammation of the bile duct and large intestine respectively. The existence of any plausible association between primary sclerosing cholangitis and ulcerative colitis remains highly elusive. Little is known about the incidence and prevalence of primary sclerosing cholangitis with concomitant ulcerative colitis in the Indian subcontinent. We report a case of primary sclerosing cholangitis with long standing ulcerative colitis which later also developed primary biliary cirrhosis.

Key words: Primary sclerosing cholangitis, Ulcerative colitis, Primary biliary cirrhosis
