Abstract

Background: A 26-year-old patient presented with ascending cholangitis 8 months after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation for immunoblastic lymphoma. Methods and Results: Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreato-graphy showed common and hepatic biliary duct obstruction that was atti-buted to chronic graft-versus-host disease. Conclusion: This case indicates that hepatobiliary disease related to chronic graft-versus-host disease may involve major bile ducts causing obstruction.
