Abstract
Trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is widely used in the treatment of unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Its common complications are right upper quadrant pain, nausea, vomiting, whereas some rare complications include focal pancreatic necrosis, gastric ulcer, renal failure, DIC, biliary tree necrosis and splenic infarction. Bronchobiliary fistula (BBF) is a rare complication that consists of the formation of a passageway between the biliary system and the bronchial tree. We report a case of BBF due to previous TACE for HCC.
Key Words: Hepatocellular carcinoma; Transarterial chemoembolization; Bronchobiliary fistula
