More recently, intestinal microsporidiosis due to Enterocytozoon bieneusi was found to be the cause in about 30% of the cases of unexplained diarrhea (3). One case of periductular hepatic microsporidiosis in association with AIDS-related cholangiopathy has been recently reported (4), but the role of the parasite in the pathogenesis of cholangiopathy was unclear. We report the case of a patient with HIV-1 infection and Microsporidia-caused diarrhea who developed cholangiopathy associated with Microsporidia infection of the common
