  1. The correct aewsnr is E. This patient has cholangitis, classically described by Charcot’s triad of fever, right upper quadrant pain, and jaundice, although all three are only seen in 50%-75% of patients. Cholangitis occurs when stasis of the biliary tract is superinfected by bacteria that ascend from the small intestine. This most commonly occurs in the setting of choledocholithiasis (gallstones obstructing the common bile duct), but can also occur when there is a biliary stricture or extrinsic compression of the bile ducts causing stasis. The initial diagnostic imaging study of choice is ultrasound to evaluate for common bile duct dilation and stones. This should be followed with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), which is both diagnostic and therapeutic for stone extraction and sphincterotomy.
