Objective: Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) is a rare type of primary liver cancer (PLC) arising from intrahepatic bile ducts. We carried out a case–control study to assess the association between ICC and hepatitis B and C virus (HBV and HCV) infections, alcohol intake, and hepatolithiasis in Brescia, North Italy. Methods: Among 370 subjects with histology-based diagnosis of PLC who were resident in the area and hospitalized in 1995–2000, 26 (7%) ICC cases were identified. A total of 824… Expand
Risk Factors for Intrahepatic and Extrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma: A Hospital-Based Case–Control Study
TLDR
Liver cirrhosis and chronic HCV infection are possible risk factors for ICC but not ECC, and heavy alcohol consumption is a risk factor for both ICC and ECC. Expand
Hepatitis B Virus Infection and Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma in Korea: A Case-Control Study
TLDR
The results indicate that development of ICC seems to be more closely related to HBV infection than to HCV infection in Korea, where both HBV and ICC are endemic. Expand
Bile Duct Dysplasia in the Setting of Chronic Hepatitis C and Alcohol Cirrhosis
TLDR
Dysplasia can be found within the intrahepatic bile ducts in chronicHCV cirrhosis, supporting recent epidemiologic studies identifying chronic HCV as a major risk factor for intra hepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Expand
Clinicopathological comparison between intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma arising in livers positive and negative for hepatitis B or C virus
TLDR
The clinicopathological features and the prognosis after the surgical treatment of ICCs arising from livers with and without hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) are compared, with an aim of clarifying the impact of HBV or HCV infection on the development of ICC and on the prognostic of patients. Expand
Risk of hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancers after hepatitis C virus infection: A population‐based study of U.S. veterans
TLDR
It is indicated that HCV infection conferred a more than twofold elevated risk of ICC and a significant association with pancreatic cancer was erased by alcohol use and other variables. Expand
Hepatitis C and hepatitis B nucleic acids are present in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas from the United States.
TLDR
In this study, 27% of ICC cases contained HBV and/or HCV nucleic acids, suggesting an etiologic role for these viruses in some cases of IHC. Expand
Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma arising in chronic viral hepatitis-associated cirrhosis: two transplant cases.
TLDR
In cirrhotic patients with active malignancy who are candidates for LDLT, ICC should be considered in the differential diagnosis, although the literature is limited, selected patients with ICC may benefit from LDLT. Expand
Risk of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Cancers Following Hepatitis C Virus Infection
TLDR
The risk of HCC associated with HCV was very high, and adjustment for cirrhosis, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, hepatitis B, alcoholism, and alcoholic liver disease did not reduce the risk for ICC below twofold. Expand
[The relationship between hepatitis B virus infection and the incidence of pancreatic cancer: a retrospective case-control study].
TLDR
There was no significant association between seropositivity for HBsAg or anti-HCV and PC and further studies are warranted to clarify the association between HBV infection and PC in regions where HBV is endemic. Expand
Hepatitis C virus infection and the risk of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma: evidence from a systematic review and meta-analysis of 16 case-control studies
TLDR
HCV infection is associated with the increasing risk of CCA, especially ICC, and the pooled risk estimate of ICC in studies from North America was obviously higher than in Asia. Expand

Hepatitis B and C virus infection, alcohol drinking, and hepatocellular carcinoma: A case‐control study in Italy
TLDR
Positive interactions (synergisms) between both HBsAg positivity and HCV RNApositivity and heavy alcohol intake were found, suggesting more than additive effects of viral infections and alcohol drinking on the risk of HCC. Expand
Hepatitis B and C virus, Clonorchis sinensis for the risk of liver cancer: a case-control study in Pusan, Korea.
TLDR
Strong evidence indicated that both HBV and HCV infection were independent risk factors for HCC in Korea, and C. sinensis in stools and heavy drinking were associated with the risk of CLG in Korea. Expand
Hepatitis C virus genotypes in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma in Thailand.
TLDR
HBV infection is still the most important risk factor for HCC, but HCV also has an important role in those without HBV infection, and the genotypic distribution of HCV in HCC in Thailand is similar to that in the general population. Expand
Case‐control study on hepatitis C virus (HCV) as a risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma: The role of HCV genotypes and the synergism with hepatitis B virus and alcohol
TLDR
A case‐control study to evaluate the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and HBV infection and alcohol intake in Brescia, North Italy found synergism was found. Expand
Risk factors and clinical presentation of hepatobiliary carcinoma in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis: A case‐control study
TLDR
Clinical and biochemical presentation of PSC patients with and without hepatobiliary carcinoma did not differ during the year before cancer diagnosis/Ltx, and smoking seems to be a risk factor for developing hepatobility carcinoma in patients with PSC. Expand
Incidence, etiologic aspects and clinicopathologic features in intrahepatic cholangiocellular carcinoma--a study of 51 cases from a low-endemicity area.
A total of 51 cases (19 males and 32 females) of intrahepatic cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCC) from a low-endemicity area of primary liver cancer was analyzed during the periods from 1958 to 1979Expand
Liver cancer in Thailand. I. A case‐control study of cholangiocarcinoma
TLDR
The results suggest that males may be at higher risk than females for cholangiocarcinoma, and regular users of betel nut had a high risk, a possible mechanism being through their increased exposure to nitro‐samines. Expand
Hepatitis C virus antibody in patients with primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, and combined hepatocellular‐cholangiocarcinoma) in Japan
TLDR
The authors investigated the prevalence of anti‐HCV in HCC patients, as well as the same prevalence in patients with cholangiocarcinoma (CC) and combined hepatocellular–cholang iocarc inoma (combined HCC‐CC), to study the clinicopathologic features of anti-HCV–positive cases. Expand
Aetiological aspects on primary liver cancer with special regard to alcohol, organic solvents and acute intermittent porphyria--an epidemiological investigation.
TLDR
Environmental factors of possible aetiological importance for primary liver carcinoma (PLC) in males were analysed in a case-control study including 83 cases of hepatocellular carcinoma and six cases with PLC had polyphyria cutanea tarda (PCT), which in 4 cases was related to alcoholism and in one case to haemochromatosis. Expand
Hepatolithiasis associated with cholangiocarcinoma
TLDR
Patients with hepatolithiasis should be kept in mind if there are high levels of CEA, if the location of the stones is classified as type I-L, or if portal veins cannot be seen on portograms, and liver resection should be considered because there may be undiagnosed cholangiocarcinoma. Expand
