Case Discussion

73 year old male with Jaundice and pruritus.

Gradually increasing enhancement through the portovenous and delayed phase (approx. 15 mins post contrast) are features of a cholangiocarcinoma.

Similar pattern of enhancement is seen in a mass at the confluence of the right and left hepatic ducts (Klatskin's Tumour) in this case.

The cholangiogram shows a filling defect at the right and left hepatic duct confluence. An Internal - external type of a percutaneous drainage is performed in this case (Image4).
