    Abstract

    Infection by the liver fluke Clonorchis sinensis is very common in the Far East. It causes low grade inflammatory changes and proliferation in the biliary tree. Initially there is desquamation of the biliary epithelium, followed by hyperplasia and adenomatous proliferation. Cholangiocarcinomas are potential long term complications. We present a case of biliary papillary hyperplasia with clonorchiasis resembling cholangiocarcinoma in a 69-yr-old Korean man. Early recognition of biliary hyperplasia and treatment of Clonorchis sinensis is important to prevent development of cholangiocarcinoma, especially in the Far East.
