Infection with liver flukes has been reported to be associated with bile duct malignancy. 
Lung and liver flukes
TLDR
The immune response to Paragonimus westermani infection is marked by an up-regulation in the immune-compulsive response to Fasciola hepatica, and the immune defences of the immune system are disturbed. Expand
Helicobacter bilis colonization of the biliary system in patients with pancreaticobiliary maljunction
TLDR
This study investigated the prevalence of H. bilis colonization of the biliary system of patients with pancreaticobiliary maljunction and found that it was high in patients with PBM. Expand
Diagnosis efficacy of CEUS for hepatic inflammatory lesions
TLDR
In this study, the efficacy of US/CEUS and clinicopathologic parameters in differential diagnosis of hepatic inflammatory lesions were evaluated and the results confirmed the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus. Expand
Cholangiocarcinoma in USA‐ versus Asian‐born Asians: Is viral hepatitis a factor?
TLDR
This study attempted to clarify the risk factor profile for immigrant Asians compared with the USA population, and found liver and biliary tract cancers are more common in Asian countries than in the USA. Expand
Epidemiology and Pathogenesis of Cholangiocarcinoma
TLDR
This chapter summarises the major reported epidemiological changes and describes the major known risk factors as well as the molecular pathogenesis of cholangiocarcinoma. Expand
Expression of stage-specific Fasciola proteases and their evaluation in vaccination trials
TLDR
The liver flukes Fasciola hepatica and F. gigantica cause infectious disease in ruminants and humans and the geographical range of these two parasite species ensures that infection can occur worldwide. Expand
Malignant Transformation Arising Within Unusual and Rare Hepatic Lesions: Fibropolycystic Disease Form of Ductal Plate Malformation and Biliary Adenofibroma
TLDR
2 cases of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma arising within unusual and rare hepatic lesions, fibropolycystic liver disease form of ductal plate malformation and biliary adenofibroma, whose association with malignancy is rarely reported in the literature are described. Expand
Biliary parasites: Diagnostic and therapeutic strategies
TLDR
This article focuses on primary biliary parasites: Ascaris lumbricoides, Clonorchis sinensis, Opisthorchis viverrini, Opistshorch is felineus, Dicrocoelium dendriticum, Fasciola hepatica, and Fasciolla gigantica. Expand
Diagnosis and Management of Intrahepatic and Extrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma.
TLDR
In this chapter, the risk factors, clinical presentation, and management of cholangiocarcinoma are reviewed. Expand
The Role of Surgery in Treating Parasitic Diseases of the Digestive System from Trematodes
TLDR
Management is predominantly with oral praziquantel, and surgical intervention is relevant in select infections, and changes to farming practices, population education, and cultural food production practices can reduce the incidence of this neglected tropical disease. Expand

Liver-fluke infection as an aetiological factor in bile-duct carcinoma of man.
  • D. Flavell
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene
  • 1981
TLDR
The evidence that opisthorchiasis and clonorchiasis are aetiological factors in the causation of human bile-duct cancer, especially cholangiocarcinoma, is reviewed. Expand
Clonorchis-associated cholangiocarcinoma: a report of two cases with unusual manifestations.
TLDR
A knowledge of the wide spectrum of clinical presentation of clonorchiasis, particularly cholangiocarcinoma, might aid Western physicians in averting this serious sequela through prompt eradication of the helminthic infection and early recognition and treatment of its complications. Expand
THE LONGEVITY OF CLONORCHIS SINENSIS
Summary The persistence of Clonorchis sinensis infestation of the bile duct for a period of at least 26 years without neoplasia supervening is reported in a Chinese immigrant to Australia.
Pathology and immunology of Clonorchis sinensis infection of the liver.
  • T. Sun
  • Medicine
  • Annals of clinical and laboratory science
  • 1984
TLDR
The existence of clonorchiasis cases among the Asian immigrants and the major clinical and pathologic features encountered in those patients is emphasized and the specific immunologic phenomenon in clonOrchiasis is described. Expand
Peritoneoscopic findings in 203 patients with Opisthorchis viverrini infection.
TLDR
The authors found that cholangiocarcinoma is frequently encountered in patients presenting with prolonged jaundice and hepatomegaly as well as with the peritoneoscopic findings of dilated superficial intrahepatic bile ducts, a bile-stained liver surface and a markedly enlarged gallbladder. Expand
Cholangiocarcinoma in patients with opisthorchiasis
TLDR
Survival after surgical treatment of cholangiocarcinoma in patients with opisthorchiasis is broadly similar to that reported for cholangsiocARCinoma without liver fluke infestation. Expand
The role of infection by opisthorchis viverrini, hepatitis B virus, and aflatoxin exposure in the etiology of liver cancer in thailand. A correlation study
TLDR
There was little geographic variation in incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma or in prevalence of the major risk factors (chronic carriage of hepatitis B virus and exposure to aflatoxin), and apparently there was little relationship between them. Expand
Liver changes in hamsters infected with a liver fluke of man, Opisthorchis viverrini.
TLDR
Findings suggest that immunopathologic mechanisms may be important in the pathogenesis of liver fluke disease. Expand
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
Generation of High Yields of Syrian Hamster Cholangiocellular Carcinomas and Hepatocellular Nodules by Combined Nitrite and Aminopyrine Administration and Opisthorchis viverrini Infection
TLDR
The results indicate that parasite associated liver injury and non‐specific compensatory regeneration may play an important role in generation of both hepatocellular and cholangiocellular carcinomas in man. Expand
