Abstract

Eight children with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) and recurrent bacteremia with enteric pathogens are described. Typical clinical features of bacterial cholangitis were absent, although in five patients histological and/or microbiological data indicated that the bacteremic episodes originated in the biliary tree. Bacteremia with enteric pathogens or recurrent culture-negative febrile illness in a child with ARPKD should raise suspicion of cholangitis, even in the absence of typical clinical findings.
