AbstractRecurrent pyogenic cholangitis is prevalent in Hong Kong and East Asia. While the recent influx of Asian immigrants has resulted in more cases appearing in the West, over the past three decades, the overall incidence in East Asia has been in decline. The experience of the Queen Mary Hospital and other hospitals in the region has been confirmed by comprehensive surveys. The decline in incidence has been attributed to the improved economic situation and living standards with the associated westernisation of diet.
