Abstract

Background/Aims: Some tumor markers such as CA 19-9 are shown to be increased in obstructive jaundice due to either benign or malignant causes. In this study the clinical importance of raised serum levels of tumor markers have been evaluated, with particular reference to obstructive jaundice and percutaneous biliary drainage.
