Abstract
La ictericia obstructiva es una presentación poco común en un hepatocarcinoma (HC). Cuando en estos casos existe ictericia, habitualmente se debe a daño progresivo por cirrosis, o a infiltración tumoral extensa. El crecimiento o vaciamiento tumoral hacia la vía biliar se ha descrito ocasionalmente como causa de ictericia obstructiva. En raras ocasiones, puede tratarse de fragmentos de hepatocarcinoma que migran hacia la vía biliar, obstruyéndola. Presentamos un caso de ictericia obstructiva por migración de fragmentos de hepatocarcinoma a la vía biliar, en un paciente tratado 7 años antes por un HC, con resección curativa. Obstructive j aundice is a rare present...
