Abstract

We report a 56-year-old man with sclerosing cholangitis and oxalate urolithiasis. These complications occurred five years after proctocolectomy and ileostomy were performed for ulcerative colitis. Two years before, at the time of proctocolectomy, there was no clinical or biochemical evidence of liver abnormality. The occurrence and progression of sclerosing cholangitis five years after proctocolectomy is unusual. Also unusual is the occurrence of oxalate urolithiasis; more common in ulcerative colitis, especially after ileostomy, are uric acid stones.
