About 20–30% of cholangiocarcinomas appear as nodular intrahepatic mass [1,2]: however, intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas may also be polypoid or focally stenotic. Excluding the nodular intrahepatic type, about three-fourths of cholangiocarcinomas manifest as a focal stricture and one-fourth are polypoid or diffusely stenotic [3].
