Abstract

Primary sclerosing cholangitis is a chronic, fibrosing, inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology affecting the biliary tree. We describe a case of a pregnancy complicated by this condition. Remarkably, maternal cholestasis improved with advancing gestation. Despite a marked elevation of bile acid levels in cord blood, the patient was delivered of a healthy term infant. The principles of management and potential effects of primary sclerosing cholangitis on pregnancy care are discussed.
