Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) 

Home » Conditions » Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) 
Primary sclerosing cholangitis is a chronic progressive disorder in which the medium and large bile ducts of the liver become inflamed and scarred. Over time, this predisposes to recurrent infections of the bile ducts, is associated with an increased risk of developing liver cancer and bile duct cancer, and can lead to cirrhosis with the eventual need for a liver transplant. Symptoms include pruritus, fatigue, right upper quadrant pain, jaundice and diarrhea. While there is no currently approved treatment for this disease, monitoring of this condition for progression is important, as well as addressing any symptoms or complications that may occur.
