Abstract

Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) with lymph node (LN) metastasis is generally associated with a poor prognosis. However, we treated ICC with LN metastasis successfully by surgery and postoperative immunotherapy in a 59-year-old woman. The immunotherapy consisted of CD3-activated T cells and tumor lysate- or peptide-pulsed dendritic cells. Pathological examination confirmed a diagnosis of moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma with LN metastasis and portal vein invasion. The patient has been alive without recurrence for 3 years 6 months since her operation.
