In brief: Obstructed bile duct

Cholangitis is an infection of the bile duct that connects the liver to the intestine.
These are serious infections since the infection can easily spread to the liver and the bloodstream, causing sepsis. This is almost always due to blockage of the bile duct, typically due to a stone or tumor. The combination of pain, fever, and jaundice are the most common symptoms.
