|Abstract: ||Ascariasis is a common disease in many developing countries and is a
common cause of biliary and pancreatic diseases in endemic areas.
Numerous studies have been published on biliary tract ascariasis. All
these have documented ultrasonography as the primary imaging modality
for biliary tract ascariasis. Magnetic Resonance
Cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) has been the latest entrant for the
study of bilary tract. MRCP findings of biliary tract ascariasis have
been scarcely documented. MRCP is a unique non-invasive investigation
for demonstrating ascariasis in Gall bladder and bilary tract clearly.
We present MR appearances of Gall bladder and biliary tract in a proven
case of biliary ascariasis.|
