Adenosquamous carcinoma of the liver (ASC) is considered a very rare subtype of cholangiocarcinoma. The definition of ASC indicates a carcinoma including both adenocarcinoma and squamous carcinoma components. Knowledge about primary hepatic ASC is limited to case reports. It reveals diagnostic problems in radiology practice. In this case report, we represented a 56-year-old woman who was admitted to the hospital with a complaint of epigastric pain for three months.
