Episodic biliary obstruction
due to an intrahepatic biliary cystadenoma: a case report
Biliary cystadenoma is a rare,
benign neoplasm of the bile ducts with malignant potential. Symptoms,
predominantly right hypochondrial pain and the feeling of a lump or fullness
are usually due to the mass effect. Jaundice is rare. This is the fifth
reported patient with an intrahepatic biliary cystadenoma giving rise to
episodic biliary obstruction, which is usually caused by choledocholithiasis or
periampullary carcinoma. Considering the mean age of previous similar patients
(53.5, standard deviation 14.6 years), the early age of presentation is very
unusual in our patient.
A 25-year-old Asian woman
presented with right hypochondrial pain and episodic biliary obstruction.
Contrast enhanced computed tomography revealed a cystic mass in segment 4B and
protruding into and along the left hepatic duct. Laparotomy confirmed the
contrast enhanced computed tomography findings and histology revealed an
intrahepatic mucinous biliary cystadenoma.
Biliary cystadenoma should be
considered as a differential diagnosis in patients with cystic liver lesions
who present with episodic biliary obstruction. Due to the reported malignant
potential, radical surgery such as wide local excision of the lesion or hepatic
resection is needed to minimize the risk of local recurrence.
