Cryptosporidiosis of the gastrointestinal tract associated with sclerosing cholangitis in the absence of documented immunodeficiency: Cryptosporidium parvum and sclerosing cholangitis in an immunocompetent child

This is a case of a 4-year-old boy who was referred to the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa because of a 2-year history of chronic diarrhoea, abdominal distention, recurrent chest infections, and poor weight gain History revealed that the boy had been well prior to the onset of symptoms. Anthropometric measurements suggested below-normal growth patterns. His abdomen was distended, with a 4-cm hepatomegaly.

Sclerosing cholangitis (SC) is a heterogeneous disease entity. Different etiologies such as choledocholithiasis, biliary tumor, or pericholangitis can manifest as SC. Hepatic inflammatory pseudo-tumor (IP) is rarely associated with SC (sclerosing...

Recently, endoscopic findings of the duodenal papilla in cases with AIP or PSC were reported by Unno a...
