Immunoglobulin G4-mediated sclerosing cholangitis as a risk factor for cholangiocarcinoma: A case report.

Abstract

Immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-mediated disease is a systemic autoimmune disease, which occasionally presents solely as sclerosing cholangitis (SC). IgG4-mediated SC is challenging to diagnose, as it may mimic cholangiocarcinoma radiologically, and carcinoma cells may produce IgG4.
