The authors present a case of a 67-year-old male patient, who previously had been diagnosed with a malignant liver tumor localized in segment II. He underwent bisegmentectomy (II and III) and partial IV segmentectomy. After the primary surgery jaundice developed, the level of bilirubin increased and after several imaging modalities reoperation was indicated. During the surgery a rare bile duct anatomy variant was found. The right hepatic duct joined the left duct in the parenchyma of the left lobe, and was ligated at the resection. As the liver hilum was not explored, the absence of the right duct was not discovered. Reconstruction of the biliary system was accomplished by a Roux-en-Y loop.
