NIH Rare Diseases:46 Primary sclerosing cholangitis (psc) is characterized by inflammation in the bile ducts (cholangitis) that leads to scarring (sclerosis), narrowing of the ducts, and a buildup of bile in the liver. early signs and symptoms include extreme tiredness, abdominal pain, and itchiness. as the condition worsens it may cause jaundice, an enlarged spleen, and eventually liver cirrhosis and failure. other complications may include weight loss, vitamin deficiency, and osteoporosis. many people with psc develop other autoimmune conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, type 1 diabetes, celiac disease, or thyroid disease. psc is also a risk factor for cancer of the bile ducts (cholangiocarcinoma). last updated: 3/4/2013
MalaCards based summary: Cholangitis, Primary Sclerosing, also known as primary sclerosing cholangitis, is related to sclerosing cholangitis and cholangitis. An important gene associated with Cholangitis, Primary Sclerosing is PSC (Cholangitis, Primary Sclerosing). Affiliated tissues include liver, thyroid and spleen.
Genetics Home Reference:24 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 (sclerosis) and narrowing of the ducts. As a result, bile cannot be released to the gallbladder and small intestine, and it builds up in the liver.
