Abstract

We report the imaging findings of an atypical case of cholangiocarcinoma. The patient was a 59-year-old man, in whom a multicystic liver mass was found on the left lobe of the liver by US. However, the images obtained from contrast CT showed small nodules had gathered and a low density mass in the early phase and peripheral enhancement in the late phase. It seemed to be liver echinococcosis because a group of small nodules appeared on the CT image. An extended left lobectomy of the liver was carried out. The pathological finding was cholangiocarcinoma.
