Purpose:

To assess prognosis in patients with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) using the current Mayo risk score.

Specialty:

Gastroenterology
Immunology/Rheumatology

Objective:

risk factors, severity, prognosis, stage

ICD-10:

K83.0

Description:

Further work on the Mayo Risk Score in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis resulted in the Current Mayo Natural History Model. The risk score is plotted over time. An upward trend in the risk score is seen in the terminal phases of primary sclerosing cholangitis and can help in making therapeutic decisions such as the timing of liver transplantation. The score may obviate the need for a liver biopsy.
