Its concentration in these patients varies widely and does not correlate with tumour size, although it does correlate with metastatic involvement. These authors argue that the ducts draining the caudate lobe entered directly into the bifurcation and are frequently involved with Klatskin tumors.

At present, there is no effective nonsurgical therapy for cholangiocarcinoma, as either an adjuvant therapy or for unresectable disease. Chronic biliary tract parasitic infection, seen ilatskin in Southeast Asia due to Clonorchis sinensis and Opisthorchis viverrini, has also been identified as a cancee factor.
