Abstract
Occasional side-effects of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization therapy in hepatocellular carcinoma are essentially related to tissue necrosis. We report the case of a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma who experienced an acute common bile duct obstruction a few weeks after such a procedure, in the absence of obvious biliary tract invasion. An endoscopic sphincterotomy relieved the obstruction. At histology, the intra-biliary material was identified as a fragment of hepatocellular carcinoma. We discuss the causes of obstructive jaundice in the setting of hepatocellular carcinoma as well as in the specific situation of transcatheter arterial chemoembolization therapy.
