Ascending cholangitis
An infection of the bile duct, the tube that carries bile (a substance secreted by the liver that is required for digestion) from the liver to a series of tubes eventually leading to the intestine. It occurs from bacteria in the intestine traveling upwards through these tubes, often after there is already a blockage of the duct. It is a life-threatening medical emergency.
