Hi Elizabeth: i have been looking for information on the incidence of bile duct carcinoma in Vietnam veterans, but have so far been unsuccessful in my Medline searches. It is true that infestation with the liver fluke Clonorchis sinensis and Opisthorchis viverrine are known risk factors for bile duct carcinoma, and people who have been in that part of the world often acquire these flukes. I will keep looking. You may want to try calling a Veterans Administration Hospital,and asking if they could direct you to a source of that information. peter
