Significant hemobilia due to arterio-biliary fistula is a very rare complication of chemoradiation therapy (CRT) for unresectable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). Here we report a case of arterio-biliary fistula after CRT for unresectable ICC demonstrated by angiographic examinations. This fistula was successfully treated by endovascular embolization. Hemobilia is a rare complication, but arterio-biliary fistula should be considered after CRT of ICC.
