Cholangiohepatitis is an inflammation of the biliary system and, by extension, of the local hepatic parenchyma.
Acute supportive cholangitis and cholangiohepatitis occur due to the presence of bacteria which originate in the gut and ascend to the lower bile duct due to various predisposing conditions (biliary stasis, cholelithiasis, chronic pancreatitis, irritable bowel disease, biliary strictures, anatomic abnormalities, etc).
