Abstract We herein report a case of laparoscopic adrenalectomy for solitary adrenal metastasis from intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). Although the treatment of extrahepatic metastasis from primary liver tumors is essentially palliative, solitary metastasis from such tumors offers the possibility of a cure by surgical resection. The adrenal gland is an uncommon site for metastasis from ICC. A patient who had received a right hepatic lobectomy with lymph node resection for ICC later developed a heterochronous adrenal metastasis, and thus underwent laparoscopic adrenalectomy 30 months after the liver resection. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of adrenalectomy for heterochronous metastasis from ICC.
