Permanent liver scarring (cirrhosis) eventually develops.
Primary sclerosing cholangitis: A rare disease with unknown causes, primary sclerosing cholangitis causes inflammation and scarring in the bile ducts in the liver.The most common type of liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, almost always occurs after cirrhosis is present.The liver is a large, meaty organ that sits on the right side of the belly.
