Abstract

The history of a 38-year-old, asymptomatic man with primary sclerosing cholangitis is reported. The diagnosis has been suggested by eosinophilia (66%, 27 X 10(9)/l leucocytes) and markedly elevated serum alkaline phosphatase levels (1860 U/l) and has been established by endoscopic retrograde cholangiography. Report of a therapeutic approach with D-Penicillamin. Documentation of follow-up by endoscopic retrograde cholangiography.
