Abstract

The most causes of an icteric hepatoma are a late stage hepatocellular carcinoma or intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. A hepatocellular carcinoma, causing an obstrucution of the bile duct, rarely results in jaundice. With a late stage hepatocellular carcinoma, the accurate diagnosis and treatment may be difficult. Herein, we report a case of a hepatocellular carcinoma and obstructive jaundice, due to hilar tumor emboli, with a review of the literature.
