Carcinoma of the main biliary way is a condition that often leads to a fatal outcome owing to the rapid growth and late onset of the symptoms. The importance of a correct, timely diagnosis is stressed, with reference to a clinical case in which even CT scanning did not confirm either the presence of the neoformation or the dilation of the intra and extrahepatic bile ways.
The usefulness of humoral markers for the diagnosis of the disease in its preclinical phase in the interests of surgical treatment that is as radical as possible is underlined.
