    Abstract

    A young Caucasian woman is described in whom obstructive jaundice was caused by a granular cell myoblastoma of the common bile duct. She was treated by percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage for 10 days, before radical removal. Granular cell myoblastomas are benign lesions of disputed histogenesis, rare among biliary neoplasms, the excision of which is curative.
