Primary sclerosing cholangitis
Type of disease: Rare conditions
Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) is a rare liver and bile duct disease which may have an autoimmune component. It’s not curable, but some of the symptoms are treatable – and there’s hope. PSC is often associated with ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and related gastrointestinal and autoimmune diseases. Some PSC patients eventually require a liver transplant. Many PSCers, despite daily limitations and medications, are able to live full lives.
