Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis

Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) is an uncommon, chronic Progressive disorder that leads to scarring and inflammation of the medium and large bile ducts of the liver. The disease leads to progressive destruction and blockage of the bile ducts and inability of the liver to secrete bile into the intestines. Bile is a substance that is produced by the liver and helps with digestion of dietary fat. Bile ducts function as the liver’s plumbing system and allow bile to flow out of the liver. When bile backs up in the liver, progressive scarring of the liver occurs which leads to cirrhosis.
