A 64-year-old woman was admitted for epigastralgia. Abdominal computed tomography demonstrated a large tumor in the right lobe of the liver to adrenal grand. An aspiration tumor biopsy was performed because of difficulty in diagnosing the tumor, and the pathological findings suggested intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. At surgery right hepatic lobectomy with caudate lobe combined with right adrenal glandectomy and diaphragmectomy was performed. Pathological findings showed moderately differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma with invasion to right adrenal gland, but no lymph node metastasis was involved nor invasion of lymph vessel and vein. The postoperative course was uneventful and the woman remains recurrence-free for 12 months after the surgery.
