Abstract

Biliary papillomatosis (BP) is a rare disease that is classified as either the mucin-hypersecreting type or nonmucin-secreting type. Typical papillomas of the biliary tree mainly involve intrahepatic bile ducts or both intra- and extrahepatic bile ducts. The isolated involvement of the extrahepatic bile duct is rare, and there is no report of BP confined to the gallbladder in Korea. We report a case of a 50-year-old man who developed obstructive jaundice due to hypersecreted mucin from papillomas of the gallbladder.
