Secondary bacterial cholangitis is a type of infection of the bile ducts (the tubes that carry bile from the liver to the small intestine) caused by bacteria. It is usually caused by bacteria that have spread from another part of the body, such as the intestines, or from a medical procedure. Symptoms of secondary bacterial cholangitis include fever, abdominal pain, jaundice, and dark urine. Treatment typically involves antibiotics and possibly surgery to remove any blockages in the bile ducts.
