Article Title: Hepatobiliary cancers, version 2.2014
Abstract: Hepatobiliarycancers include a spectrum of invasive carcinomas arising in the liver (hepatocellular carcinoma),gallbladder,andbile ducts (cholangiocarcinomas). Gallbladder cancer and cholangiocarcinomas are collectively known as biliary tract cancers. Gallbladder cancer is the most common and aggressive type of all the biliary tract cancers. Cholangiocarcinomas are diagnosed throughout the biliary tree and are typically classified as either intrahepatic or extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Extrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas are more common than intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas. This manuscript focuses on the clinical management of patients with gallbladder cancer and cholangiocarcinomas (intrahepatic and extrahepatic). © JNCCN - Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
