Inflammatory cholangiopathies represent an heterogeneous group of small and/or large bile duct diseases that are difficult to categorize according to an intuitive semiologic or nosologic classification. The purpose of this review is to synthesize the histological and cholangiographic basic injuries that characterize these disorders, and to propose a nosologic approach of these conditions based on their expected mechanisms and levels of lesion along the biliary tree. A brief reminder of the biliary tract anatomy and physiology will precede this presentation.
