AbstractSurgical resection with a tumor-free margin is the only curative treatment for hilar cholangiocarcinoma (Klatskin tumor). However, over half of the patients present late with unresectable tumors. Radiotherapy using external beam irradiation or intraluminal brachytherapy (ILBT) has been used to treat unresectable hilar cholangiocarcinoma with satisfactory outcome. We reported a patent with unresectable hilar cholangiocarcinoma surviving more than 6 years after combined external beam irradiation and ILBT. © 2005 The WJG Press and Elsevier Inc.
