Abstract

Jaundice, a common feature of advanced colon cancer, is usually due to liver parenchyma metastasis, but it can sometimes be caused by extrahepatic biliary obstruction. This rare event is related to metastasis to the lymph nodes placed behind the duodenum, along the choledochus or the vena porta, extrinsically compressing the common duct. Stenosis of the common bile duct secondary to parietal metastatic involvement is extremely rare. We report on a case of colon carcinoma metastasis to the intrapancreatic tract of the common bile duct, with a review of the literature.
