    00:01 AIDS Cholangiopathy, opportunistic infection, keep this in mind.

    00:06 Opportunistic infection of the biliary tree by cryptosporidium parvum and CMV, these organisms that we've looked at earlier with immunocompromised patients specifically with AIDS.

    00:18 Remember that the most common cause of diarrhea in an AIDS patient is cryptosporidium parvum.

    00:25 If it’s CMV infection anywhere for example in the esophagus, then you should be thinking about immunocompromised patient.

    00:32 Your CD4 count usually would be less than 100, there would be right upper quadrant pain, hepatomegally and Alk Phos will be elevated.

    00:41 ERCP here once again will show you intra and extra-hepatic dilation with or without, there could be structuring, without the dilations.

    00:50 Be careful, do not confuse this with primary sclerosing cholangitis.

    00:56 There’s every possibility with AIDS that you might have gall bladder damage.

    01:03 Management -- endoscopic management of that narrowing, the strictures.
