Abstract

Biliary infection (cholecystitis, cholangitis) is among the most common clinical problems encountered in the acute setting. Ideal management is multi-disciplinary and often involves surgery, gastroenterology, critical care, and radiology. Guidelines exist which stress early and accurate diagnosis, stratification of severity, and prompt medical and surgical/interventional management. Further study is needed to define the utility of certain diagnostic tests, the optimal duration of antibiotics, and the technique/timing of surgical and/or interventional therapy.
