Abstract: 87 cases of primary hepatic carcinoma associated with opisthorchiasis were reviewed. The prevalence of liver carcinoma among 154 cases of liver fluke infection was 56.6%. The tumours were classified histologically as cholangiocarcinoma in 67 cases (77%), hepatocellular carcinoma in 9 (10.3%), mixed hepatocholangiocarcinoma in 4, squamous carcinoma in 2, and undifferentiated carcinoma in 5. Metastases, found in 71 cases, occurred most frequently in the regional lymph nodes and lungs. There were numerous of moderate numbers of liver flukes in most of these cases.
