Abstract

Congenital hepatic fibrosis (CHF) is an autosomal recessive disease, presenting principally in children or young adults with portal hypertension, and infrequently associated with cholangitis. It is associated with renal malformation and Caroli's disease. The diagnosis of CHF is usually confirmed by its typical histological features. Cholangitis is a severe and frequently fatal complication. We report a 22-year-old man with congenital hepatic fibrosis who showed the cholangitis without radiological features of cystic dilatation or stone of intrahepatic ducts.
