Reynolds pentad is a collection of signs and symptoms suggesting the diagnosis obstructive ascending cholangitis, a serious infection of the biliary system. It is a combination of Charcot's triad (jaundice, fever, and right upper quadrant pain) with shock and an altered mental status. Or sometimes the two additional signs are listed simply as low blood pressure and confusion.

Eponym
