Eosinophilic cholangiopathy

A rare cause of obstructive jaundice - case report

Published on: 10th July, 2017

Obstructive jaundice in children is not uncommon and has diverse etiologies. We report a rare cause of obstructive jaundice, cholangitis and pancreatic mass in a young boy due to eosinophilic cholangiopathy who responded to oral steroids. Presence of peripheral eosinophilia, elevated serum IgE level, radiological imaging and tissue eosinophilia helped in diagnosis. Eosinophilic cholangiopathy with pancreatitis is a benign treatable cause of obstructive jaundice though it can masquerade as malignancy.
