ABSTRACT: Cholangiocarcinoma is
uncommon cancer with an incidence 1-2/100 000 in the USA. Predisposing
diseases for developing of cholangiocarcinoma include primary sclerosing
cholangitis (PSC), congenital biliary cystic disease and hepatolithiasis
with biliary infestations by Clonorchis siniensis, also called recurrent
pyogenic cholangiohepatatis ( mainly encountered in Japan and Southwest
Asia). The majority of bile duct tumors is relatively slow-growing. However,
this progression can be rapid in some patients. Blood-borne metastases
are uncommon, but nodal metastases, perineural and lymphatic involvement
as well as subepithelial spread are very common.
Key words: cholangiocarcinoma, diagnostic, surgical treatment.
