Abstract

A case of solitary neurofibroma of the common bile duct is presented. A review of the world literature reveals only one previously reported case of solitary neurofibroma in this location. Rare case reports of neurofibroma in association with von Reckling-hausen's disease (neurofibromatosis 1) located in the hepatobiliary system are found. Discussion of traumatic neuroma, another clinically and histologically confusing entity occurring in the biliary system, is also included.
