[Sclerosing cholangitis with papillary stenosis in an HIV-infected patients with Cryptosporidium infection].
Z Gastroenterol. 1994 Aug; 32(8):441-3.ZG

Abstract

We report the case of a 46-year old HIV-infected patient who suffered from severe recurrent diarrhoea for 18 months. In stool cultures cryptosporidiae were identified. The cryptosporidial enteritis was unresponsive to therapy. In the further course of cryptosporidial infection the patient developed HIV-associated cholangitis with increasing upper abdominal pain, progredient laboratory cholestasis and morphological changes indicating posthepatic cholestasis. Papillary stenosis with erosive papilitis caused by cryptosporidia was diagnosed. Sphincterotomy significantly improved the clinical status of the patient. Cholangitis with associated crytosporidial infection in a HIV-infected patient ist discussed and necessary diagnostic and differential therapeutic approaches are described.
