clonorchiasis

 [klo″nor-ki´ah-sis]
infection of the biliary passages with the liver fluke Clonorchis sinensis, which may lead to inflammation of the biliary tree, proliferation of the biliary epithelium, and progressive portal fibrosis; extension into the liver parenchyma may lead to fatty changes and cirrhosis.

clo·nor·chi·a·sis

(klō'nōr-kī'ă-sis),
A disease caused by the fluke Clonorchis sinensis, affecting the distal bile ducts of humans and other fish-eating animals after ingestion of raw, smoked, or undercooked fish or raw crayfish; initial infection may be benign, but repeated or chronic infection induces an intense proliferative and granulomatous condition.
Synonym(s): clonorchiosis
