Cystadenomas are usually found in the extra-hepatic bile ducts in conjunction with multilocular cysts in the liver. Cystadenoma of the gallbladder itself is a rare finding, cited only once in the literature as the cause of extrinsic obstruction of the common bile duct (5). In this report, we describe the endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticographic (ERCP) detection of intrinsic obstruction of the cystic duct and common bile duct by such a tumor in a 47-yr-old woman.
