Abstract

Introduction/aim: Primary biliary cirrhosis is associated with other autoimmune diseases including Sjogren's syndrome, and scleroderma. Esophageal dysmotility is well known in scleroderma, and Sjogren's syndrome. The aim of this study is to investigate whether any esophageal motor dysfunction exists in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis.
