    ABSTRACT: Liver hydatid cyst is a parasitic disease that is endemic in Morocco. Its gravity is essentially due to its complications, such as Intrabiliary rupture. The aim of our study was to evaluate the role of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic sphincterotomy in the management of intrabiliary rupture of hydatid disease of the liver. Materials and Methods: This is a retrospective study in the department of Gastroenterology in the University Hospital Hassan II of Fez over a period of 12 years from March 2005 to October 2017. All patients admitted for hepatic hydatid disease and who received ERCP were included. We analyzed the success rate of catheterization of the common bile duct (CBD), the successful clearance of the bile duct and the complications. Results: 2860 patients had received therapeutic ERCP, 151 patients (5.3%) had hepatic hydatid disease, 112 of which had intrabiliary disruption of hepatic hydatid and 39 patients were admitted for sphincteromy for reversal of the flow after surgery of hydatid cyst. The average age of our patients was 41 years old [12 - 85]. The sex ratio F/H = was 1.12. 74% (N = 112) patients were admitted to a table cholangitis and 26% of cases were operated for KHF fistulized in the bile ducts with persistence of a large biliary flow in post-operative (39 cases). The success of initial catheterization of the commun bile duct was achieved for 138 patients (91%) or obtained secondarily after precut for 13 patients. The evacuation of hydatid membranes was carried out in 51% of them (N = 78); twenty two (14.5%) patients had one or more calculations with or without hydatid membranes. A case of gastrointestinal bleeding post ERCP was observed. All the patients followed evolved well in the long term except for two patients who presented in few months after the first ERCP severe cholangitis which required the use of a second ERCP with successful evacuation of membranes. Conclusion: In our study, endoscopic management of hydatid cyst remains a dominant position, with a very satisfactory success rate and an acceptable rate of morbidity and mortality.
