Obstructive jaundice secondary to common bile duct stricture is attributed most commonly to pancreatic cancer and cholangiocarcinoma. Benign tumors of the extrahepatic biliary duct such as papilloma or adenoma are rare, accounting for 6% of biliary tumors.1,2 Among them, neurofibromas of the extrahepatic biliary tract are extremely rare and clinically non-specific. Their preoperative diagnosis is most difficult, especially when there is no history of cholecystectomy or biliary tract trauma.3,4 We report a case of such a lesion in a young female patient.
