Secondary sclerosing cholangitis in critically ill patients (SSC - CIP) is an underdiagnosed emerging disease. The aim of this study was to characterize clinical features and prognostic factors for mortality in SSC - CIP. This retrospective study included 54 patients who were diagnosed via endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) after cardiothoracic surgery (n = 21), sepsis (n = 13), polytrauma (n = 11), and others (n = 9).
