A 42-year-old man working at a printing company was referred to our hospital for examination and treatment of icterus. We diagnosed resectable hilar cholangiocarcinoma and provided neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, extended right hepatectomy, and extrahepatic bile duct resection. A detailed history revealed that he had used 1,2-dichloropropane as part of his work as an offset colour proof-printer, and he has subsequently been recognized as having occupational cholangiocarcinoma. He has survived without recurrence for more than 2 and half years since the liver resection. In the present report, we describe our valuable experience of neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for occupational cholangiocarcinoma.
