Abstract

The staging systems of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) are based on pathological findings. The most common classification systems are the TNM UICC/AJCC classification (6th edn.) 2002 [1] and the TNM classification of the Liver Cancer Study Group of Japan (LCSGJ) (2nd English edn.) 2003 [2].
