In brief: Yes

Cholangitis is an infection of the common bile duct, the tube that carries bile from the liver to the gallbladder and intestines.
This infection occurs more commonly in women than men. The onset is usually after age 55. Individuals who are at greater risk are those who have previously suffered from gallstones.
