Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) rarely presents as biliary tract occlusion [1,2]. Intralumenal iridium-192 brachytherapy has been used to treat extrahepatic bile duct carcinoma and may be curative if the macroscopic tumour has been resected surgically [3]. We describe a rare event, a case of HCC presenting with biliary tract occlusion treated with intralumenal iridium-192 brachytherapy.
