FARIA O, Gaspar et al. Primary cholangiocarcinoma asociated with Caroli disease. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.12, pp.1433-1438. ISSN 0034-9887.

A 68 years old male presented with right hypochondrium abdominal pain and jaundice with no other clinical finding. CAT Scan and Ultrasonography showed right lobe bile duct dilatation. Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography gave an outstanding vision of a restricted right lobe bile duct dilatation associated to choledocholithiasis. A right hepatectomy and bile duct exploration were performed. The histopathological study disclosed a Caroli disease associated to a primary cholangiocarcinoma. Caroli disease is a congenital disorder characterized by intrahepatic cystic bile duct dilatation with a high risk association with cholangiocarcinoma (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 1433-8)

Keywords : Caroli disease; Cholangiocarcinoma; Cholangio-pancreatography; Magnetic resonance imaging.
