    Primary sclerosing cholangitis presenting as a localized stricture affecting a segment of the extrahepatic biliary tree is rarely found.

An endoprosthesis was endoscopically introduced through the stenotic area which led to a dramatic improvement enabling a successful liver transplantation after 2 years.
