Synchronous development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma (CC) in a liver is an extremely rare event.

Herein, we report on the first case of incidental diagnosis of synchronous HCC and CC in a patient with cryptogenic cirrhosis who underwent liver transplantation. The diagnosis was made after careful examination of the explanted liver.
