Intrahepatic bile ducts compose the outflow system of exocrine bile product from the liver.

They can be divided into:[1]

  • Lobar ducts (right and left hepatic ducts) - stratified columnar epithelium.
  • Interlobar ducts (between the main hepatic ducts and the interlobular ducts) - pseudostratified columnar epithelium.
  • Intralobular bile ducts (cholangioles or Canals of Hering) - simple cuboidal epithelium, then by hepatocytes
