Sunday 21 January 2007

Tumors with clinically recognizable mucin production arising from bile duct have been reported as:

- mucus producing bile duct carcinoma
- mucin-producing cholangiocarcinoma
- mucin-producing cholangiocellular carcinoma
- mucin-producing biliary papillomatosis
- mucin ball-producing extrahepatic bile duct carcinoma
- intraductal mucosal-spreading mucin-producing peripheral cholangiocarcinoma
- mucin-hypersecreting intrahepatic biliary neoplasms
- mucin-hypersecreting bile duct tumor
- mucin-hypersecreting papillary cholangiocarcinoma
