Pain,Fever,Jaundice: Cholangitis is an infection in the bile ducts that occurs with blockage of the bile duct, typically due to stones, tumors, or strictures of the ducts. Bacteria rapidly enter the bloodstream from the liver, causing serious infections. Treatment centers on IV antibiotics, aggressive supportive care, and, occasionally, relief of the blockage (typically performed by gastroenterologists via ercp).
