Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma emerges as a malignant, intrahepatic, epithelial neoplasm delineating biliary differentiation. As categorized by World Health Organization (WHO) in 2019, neoplasm may incriminate peripheral hepatic parenchyma or arise proximal to left hepatic duct and right hepatic duct. Additionally designated as peripheral cholangiocarcinoma or intrahepatic bile duct carcinoma, the non encapsulated, firm, white or tan intrahepatic glandular malignancy demonstrates variable cellular differentiation with cellular or nuclear atypia. Neoplasm appears to infiltrate circumscribing dense, fibrous stroma.
