Aneurysm of the portal vein is quite infrequent and its clinical manifestations is variable. The association between aneurysm of the extrahepatic portal vein and recurring obstructive jaundice has only been described on one occasion, one where there was also portal hypertension. One case of aneurysm of extrahepatic portal vein associated with recurring cholestasis is described. The diagnosis was performed via echography and abdominal TAC and confirmed by portal venography. There was no evidence of hepatopathy or portal hypertension. Possibly, the displacement of the biliary tract the portal vein is a contributing factor to recurring cholestasis in the present case.
