Abstract

The current incidence of combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma varies from 2 to 5% of cases, and is one of the rarest histological types in the world. The large size and hypervascularisation of the tumour makes a surgical approach difficult in these patients, while the rare histological features require a more detailed study of the piece and the application of immunohistochemical techniques to confirm the diagnosis.
