Biliary papillomatosis is a lesion characterized by multifocal papillary tumours which has the potential of local recurrence. There is usually cytological atypia. Therefore it is difficult to differentiate it from papillary carcinoma. Sometimes malign transformation occurs.

We discuss this rare case reviewing the literature.
