Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a suspected risk factor for extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ECC), though how it gives rise to malignant disease of the bile ducts situated outside the liver is unclear. Here, a significant association was found for HBV infection, A blood type, and ECC risk in the Han Chinese ethnic group of Southern China. Compared with non-A blood group ECC patients, type A ECC patients tended to be younger and had lower CA-125 and CA19-9 levels. The study is the first to confirm an association between A blood group, HBV, and ECC risk.
