Abstract© 2015 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd. A hepatitis B virus carrier suffering from acute flare of chronic hepatitis B infection underwent deceased-donor liver transplantation. He was put on the immunosuppressive agent tacrolimus. On routine follow-up, he was found to have abnormal liver function. Computed tomography scan of the abdomen did not show any dilatation of the biliary system. Liver biopsy showed scattered microabscesses, and a microgranuloma was detected. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography was performed and a biliary anastomotic stricture (BAS) was noted. In addition, the Chinese liver fluke, Clonorchis sinensis, was discovered. Balloon dilatation and stenting were performed. The patient was given a course of praziquantel. His liver function improved and normalized. We present the case of a liver transplant recipient with cholangitis caused by C. sinensis infestation and infection and biliary obstruction resulting from BAS.
