A case of hepatoma presenting as extrahepatic biliary obstruction due to hemobilia is reported. The patient, a 49-year-old woman, developed jaundice of the obstructive type after a history of B-viral hepatitis. On laparotomy, the liver revealed macronodular cirrhosis without any noticeable mass. A 4-cm sized friable tissue and blood clots were identified within the distended left hepatic duct. Pathologic examination of this tissue confirmed the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma extended in the hepatic duct.
