Abstract

A case of congenital hepatic fibrosis with dilation of the intrahepatic ducts is presented. External drainage and lavage of the biliary tract through a prosthetic 'Y' tube and internal drainage accomplished by a Roux en Y cholangiojejunostomy resulted in prevention of the patient's recurrent bouts of cholangitis and sepsis. Surgical therapy for recurrent cholangitis in this disease is reviewed.
