We report a very rare case of acute obstructive hemobilia caused by bleeding of a mass-forming intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma in a 75-year old man. The prompt complete emergency diagnosis was made by ultrasound and confirmed by MDCT. The features of hemobilia and intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma are briefly reviewed.
