Abstract

VIJAY, K; NAIDU, S; GODARA, R  and  VIJAYVERGIA, V. Tubercular biliary stricture - a malignant masquerade. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2013, vol.51, n.4, pp. 144-145. ISSN 2078-5151.

Hilar cholangiocarcinoma is the most common cause of a stricture in the hilar region, and hilar stricture in the absence of any previous surgical intervention should be considered to indicate malignant disease until proven otherwise. We present a rare case of isolated hilar tubercular stricture, all the features of which were suggestive of malignancy.
