The Authors describe a case of intrahepatic biliary papillomatosis, which extended from the left to part of the right hepatic biliary tract. Biliary papillomatosis is a rare disease characterised by obstruction and frequently by cholangitis. The diagnosis is possible only after the final pathological analysis. The patient was studied with MRI cholangiography, which showed amorphous material in the biliary tract. The surgical treatment was a left hepatectomy (primary therapy) and an intensive follow-up was recommended. Biliary papillomatosis may become a new indication for liver transplantation.
