Abstract

After a therapeutic, apparently adequate, ERCP it is possible to observe a persistent jaundice. This represents a complex challenge and possible alternative explanations have to be considered. The approach is always based on the specific clinical situation whereas evidence in the literature is poor and only few case reports exist. Ultrasonography and lab exams can detect previously unsuspected liver disease and guide further decisions, but often ERCP haso be repeated, to rule out incomplete clearance of the common bile duct or insufficient drainage of positioned stents. Medical therapy can be based on the empirical use of steroids.
