Cryptosporidium parvum causes severe long-standing diarrhea in immunocompromised patients. Sclerosing cholangitis caused by C. parvum is a rare complication in transplant recipients. We report herein the presentation of Cryptosporidium-associated cholangitis in an adult liver transplant patient diagnosed by liver biopsy. The patient improved on treatment with azithromycin and paromomycin.
