INNOCENTI C, Franco et al. Obstuctive jaundice secondary to extrahepatic bile ducts granular cell tumor. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2011, vol.63, n.6, pp.627-630. ISSN 0718-4026. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262011000600014.
Bile ducts granular cell tumor is a rare entity. Of neural origin, mostly benign, may, however, present mimicking malignancy. We report a 32 years old female presenting with painless jaundice and extrahepatic bile ducts stenosis confirmed with MRC. Extrahepatic bile ducts resection is performed. Reconstruction involves four independent ducts to a Roux en Y enteric loop. She has a good postoperative outcome, with no evidence of complications nor recurrence at 17 months of follow up.
