Bile duct invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is rare, ranging from 1.2% to 9 %. A 51-year-old male patient visited our hospital due to jaundice. He had been infected with hepatitis B virus. He had icteric sclera without abdominal distension or tenderness. The level of total and direct bilirubin was 16.7 and 7.8 mg/dL, each other. The level of AFP was 4690 ng/mL. CT scan showed ill-defined hypervascular mass involving left hepatic lobe, left intrahepatic duct and common hepatic duct. He had been diagnosed as HCC on liver biopsy. We performed total 3 PTBDs in right, left lateral, and left medial side of the bile duct. After then, he was treated with two transarterial chemoembolizations. Finally, we carried out extended left lobectomy. After the surgery, he has been taken care at OPD without evidence of recurrence during 8 months.
