Cholangitis

  • Treatment

    Quick diagnosis and treatment are very important.

    Antibiotics to cure infection are tried first for most patients. ERCP or other surgical procedure is done when the patient is stable.

    Patients who are very ill or are quickly getting worse may need surgery right away.
