Papillomatosis of the biliary tract is characterised by multicentric papillary lesions of intra and extrahepatic biliary epithelium. It's a rare benign neoplasm of the biliary tract that causes obstructive jaundice with a high rate of malignant transformation. We described a case of papillomatosis of the biliary tract in a woman of 75-years-old, who came to our observation with jaundice, pruritus and fever. The surgical treatment consisted of cholecystectomy, choledochotomy and positioning a definitive T-Tube. We described our experience and the evolution of this disease.
