    Ascariasis is a helminthic infection of humans caused by the nematode Ascaris lumbricoides. Biliary ascariasis is one of the most common and well described entities caused by ascaris. In endemic areas pregnant women are prone to develop biliary ascariasis. Its management poses a great challenge to b...
  3. Serial cholangiographic appearances in recurrent pyogenic cholangitis

    Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 39(5):674 (1993) PMID 8224691

    From December 1982 to December 1991, cholangiograms were obtained in 227 patients with recurrent pyogenic cholangitis. Cholangiographic abnormalities included biliary dilation, calculi, sludge, excessive branching, and arrowhead formation of intrahepatic ducts and biliary strictures. In 21 pati...
  4. Biliary abnormalities associated with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction

    Hepatology 17(5):807 (1993)

    We prospectively studied 21 consecutive patients with extrahepatic portal venous obstruction for evidence of biliary tract disease. Two patients were first seen with extrahepatic cholestasis; another had recurrent cholangitis. All three patients with clinically manifest biliary disease were adults....
