The typical presentation of hepatocellular carcinoma includes abdominal pain, a right upper quadrant mass, weight loss, anorexia, ascites, or liver failure. Although the tumor sometimes involves the biliary tree and may cause jaundice, biliary colic is a rare presentation of hepatocellular carcinoma. This report describes a young patient who presented with acute biliary colic and jaundice due to hepatocellular carcinoma involving the left hepatic bile duct, which was diagnosed by endoscopic retrograde cholangiography (ERC).
