Cholangiocarcinoma is a malignant neoplasm with a difficult diagnosis and unfavorable prognosis that can appear anywhere in the biliary tree. Anatomically, it can be classified as intra- or extrahepatic, the latter being the most common primary malignancy of the biliary tract. Although bone tissue is the third most common target for metastases in general, metastatic lesions from cholangiocarcinomas are uncommon in the head and neck.
