2C12.10/C22.1 Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma



Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma is a rare form of cancer that originates in the bile ducts within the liver. The exact cause of this cancer is not known, but certain factors have been linked to its development. These include chronic inflammation, cirrhosis, hepatitis B and C, and certain genetic disorders.


Diagnosis of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma is typically made through imaging tests such as CT or MRI scans and through blood tests. Biopsies may also be used to help confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnoses for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma include other types of cancer, including metastatic cancer, and benign liver tumors.


Treatment for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma typically involves surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation therapy. In some cases, a liver transplant may be an option.


The prognosis for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma varies depending on the stage of the cancer, the size of the tumor, and the patient’s overall health. Early diagnosis and treatment can improve the chances of survival.
