Core Tip Biliary inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare, idiopathic, usually benign, mass-forming disease with myofibroblastic proliferation and the varying amount of inflammatory cells that can occur in almost every organ. IMTs of the biliary ducts are an uncommon cause of obstructive jaundice. The clinical and radiological presentation usually mimics cholangiocarcinoma (Klatskin tumor). However, histological examination shows no malignancy. We present a rare, difficult to diagnose and treat biliary IMT, which was unresponsive to the pharmacological treatment and complicated by recurrent infections and disease progression. The global experience towards diagnosing and treating this disease is limited and based mostly on clinical practice experience.
