Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) and primary billiary cirrhosis (PBC) are chronic cholestatic liver diseases of unknown etiology. True population-based epidemiological studies are scarce, especially in PSC. There is a need for large population-based studies combining meticulous case-finding and case-ascertainment strategies, which may provide clues as the possible pathogenesis and environmental risk factors for these rare enigmatic diseases. Kirsten Boonstra describes studies of the two largest population-based cohorts of PSC and PBC patients worldwide.
