A case of liver atrophy associated with hepatolithiasis and cholangiocarcinoma is presented. Intraductal calculus and left hepatic lobar atrophy were seen on both ultrasound and computerised tomography examinations. The lobar atrophy was accompanied by hypoplasia of left common hepatic artery. Cholangiocarcinoma was diagnosed on histology. There have been several reported cases of hepatolithiasis and cholangiocarcinoma. To our knowledge, there has been only one reported case of hepatolithiasis and cholangiocarcinoma with liver atrophy (Nishihara K et al 1986) but this was not angiographically demonstrated.
