Abstract

Hepatobiliary diseases are frequently associated with ulcerative colitis. The most commonly reported syndromes are primary sclerosing cholangitis, chronic active hepatitis and cirrhosis. Recently, the association of primary biliary cirrhosis and ulcerative colitis has been reported. We present a case of primary biliary cirrhosis in a young man with left-sided ulcerative colitis and review the previous reported cases, noting some unique similarities between them.
