Abstract

Biliary cystadenoma is a rare tumor that arises in the liver or, less frequently, in the extrahepatic ducts. Jaundice in patients with biliary cyst adenoma is not uncomon, but it is very rare that the jaundice is caused by tumor compression of the bile duct. A 43-year-old woman who had a huge biliary cystadenoma occupying the left liver developed deep jaundice. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatograpy demontrated that this tumor compressed the common hepatic ducts extrinsically which caused the deep jaundice.
