Abstract

Diffuse biliary papillomatosis is a rare bile duct tumour. We report a case of multiple biliary papillomatosis treated surgically with a transhepatic stent.

Diffuse biliary papillomatosis involving intra and extrahepatic bile ducts is extremely rare. It is regarded as having low grade malignant potential. In this report a case of diffuse biliary papillomatosis with obstructive jaundice is presented.
