Intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct: a recurring disease

890-891

Eva Marín-Serrano, Ana Barbado Cano,

Intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB) is a premalignant disease characterized by a low incidence, a high risk of malignant transformation, and an uncertain prognosis. We hereby present the case of an 8-mm IPNB in the left liver lobe detected by endosonography in a 76-year-old woman followed for a dissociated asymptomatic cholestasis who was treated with a left hepatectomy. The resected IPNB had low-grade dysplasia and no nodal involvement in the surgical piece; however, signs of recurrence of the disease were observed in the right liver lobe a year and a half later. Therefore, given that it can be multifocal and recurrent, IPNB is a disease that requires close follow-up.
