A 39-year-old man developed obstructive jaundice caused by solitary plexi- form neurofibroma of the common hepatic duct. Bile duct neurofibroma of the solitary type is a very rare tumor, of which only 3 cases have been described in the literature. The bile duct neurofibroma was successfully treated by resection of the gallbladder, common hepatic and common bile ducts, followed by bi-hepatico-jejunal anastomosis.
