In 4 patients, septic complications developed following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography which required surgical intervention. The pathogenesis involved stasis in the pancreatic or biliary tree, but the source of infection was unclear. Prompt recognition and early surgical intervention should decrease the seriousness of these complications.
