Re: Isolated brain metastasis in cholangiocarcinoma: a case report and rev

Thanks, Gavin.  Indeed it is a rare occurrence.  Within the seven years of the existence of this board, we were fortunate to have only one report on brain metastases.  I so much wish for this to stay this way.
Hugs,

Yes Marion, a rare occurrence and fingers are crossed that we don't hear any more cases of this.

This from the BMJ in 2013 which again states how rare this metastasis is -

My sister Karen developed brain mets from CCA.  She passed away on January 8 this year.  We were told that, while very rare, as people are staying alive longer with some new therapies, there are more metastasis to sites that weren't seen much before.
